The authors describe a clinical facility established for the
neuropsychiatric treatment of individuals with a variety of
psychopathological disorders where the common management problem is one of
aggressive behavior. The authors present case vignettes to illustrate the
clinic's consultation with mental health workers about the management of
violent patients, countertransference problems, ward problems, the role of
organic factors, medication, and prediction of violence. They urge that the
subject of violence be included in the psychiatrist's training.
