Yes! But Suzette the prison population consist of these disorders and schizophrenia is recorded at the highest percentage. The study also recorded offences like grievous bodily harm, wounding with intent, sexual assault, murder or manslaughter, arson, and burglary as some of the offences committed by the offenders in the sample (Edwards and Bond, 2012).
Oooooo! You really did your research. So, tell me more then.
And you should be. What with the kind of society we live in. I have to say this study I read by Hickling and Walcott made some key points about personality disorders that really hit home for me. Like the fact that Poverty in rural and urban Jamaica is the major cause of personality disorder and crime (Hickling and Walcott, 2013).
According to Hickling and Walcott (2013) it seems that Slavery is the main contributor to violence in the Caribbean as result of “brutal plantation life”. They described violence as a manifestation of rebellion against political, economic and racial exploitation.
I feel as if I can relate to what they are saying.
They also described homicide as a mental health problem in Jamaica (Hickling and Walcott, 2013).Basically, the issue is not deal with in the right manner.
Well obviously because persons who commit those crimes are left to the Justice system and who is to say that it is being handled correctly. If it was that man could not be working here, he would be in some mental intuition locked up.
It is so, true, the study even showed that statically persons from urban areas had more personality disorders than those rural areas.
Well I guess we know where he is from, right? Do you feel their research is relevant to the rest of the Caribbean?
Of course. The population sample by both Hickling and Walcott had similar results as they discovered challenges with conflict, abnormal power as well as authority management and rapid aggressive and transgressive behaviour.
