Psychological interventions for men with intellectual and other developmental disabilities who have a history of criminal offending - The EQUIP feasibility trial
There are very few trials of psychological interventions for men with intellectual or other developmental disabilities within secure hospital settings. Within this talk, psychological interventions with this population will be discussed broadly, and the Equipping Youth to Help One Another (EQUIP) intervention programme will be introduced. The findings from an initial open-label two-arm feasibility trial of the EQUIP programme involving 85 participants detained within nine hospitals within England and Wales will be reported and discussed. Semi-structured interviews were completed with a sample of participants and analysed using Framework Analysis to assess the acceptability of aspects of the research process and the intervention programme.
