He will also give a brief outline of some of the different ways in which the problems of Complex Needs service users can be understood.

Dr Newrith has an extensive background in the psychiatric treatment of personality disorders having worked in a number of organisations including the personality disorder unit at Broadmoor Special Hospital, where he developed a special interest in forensic psychotherapy, and through his work with the Birmingham Personality Disorder Outreach Service.
