Abstract [en]

There is a general agreement regarding the significance of patient participation in care. In forensic psychiatric care, however, this appears to be troublesome because of the paradoxical nature of having responsibility; to give person-centered, recovery-oriented psychiatric care and to protect society from potentially dangerous individuals. The aim of this study was to describe patients’ lived experiences of participation in outpatient forensic psychiatric care. Data were collected by means of individual interviews with five patients. The phenomenological hermeneutical analysis shed light on patient participation as having two dimensions. The outer dimension focuses on participation as “doing” and as a means of developing the understanding and skills necessary for being discharged from forensic care, while the inner dimension is related to “being” and experiences of acceptance and inclusion in communion with other people. This emphasises the importance of supporting patients’ experiences of being involved in everyday life together with others, even in periods when patients’ possibilities to affect decisions regarding their care are limited.
