Psychopolice order

Libcom - Sat, 01/04/2014 - 15:36
custody nurse.jpg

What will the announcement that community psychiatric nurses are to be posted in criminal justice settings do to psychiatric services and patients?

Today it was announced that mental health nurses are to be posted in police stations and courts in 10 areas across England in a long campaigned for ‘liason and diversion’ strategy. The nurse’s role in these situations will be to respond to calls alongside officers wherever there is a suspicion that someone engaged in criminal activity has a mental health problem.

The criminalisation of pathology is mirrored in the pathologisation of criminality, and a particular therapeutic nihilism becomes a nihilistic therapy.

WORUM GEHT ES? --- Zum 1. Mai 2013 wurde das Mietrecht massiv ge?ndert. Bis zuletzt hatten MieterInnenvereine versucht, die negativen Auswirkungen zu stoppen. Aber Bundestag und Bundesrat haben trotz vielf?ltiger Kritik, auch von juristischen ExpertInnen die Gesetzes?nderungen beschlossen. Neben einzelnen ?nderungen, unter anderem bei R?umungsklagen und deren Vollstreckung, gibt es vor allem wesentliche ?nderungen bei der Modernisierung. --- Im neuen Mietrecht sind die Anforderungen an eine Modernisierungsank?ndigung gelockert worden: So m?ssen jetzt die VermieterInnen vor Beginn der Arbeiten den voraussichtlichen Umfang der Arbeiten nur noch "in wesentlichen Z?gen" mitteilen. Durch diese Einf?gung werden die in der Vergangenheit oft strengen Anforderungen der Gerichte an eine Modernisierungsank?ndigung abgemildert. ...
