- Brief summaryADHD is an important predictive and treatable riskfactor for delinquency, including domestic violence. For treatment of domestic violence it is important to adjust the interventions on the presence of dynamic riskfactors, the profile of the offender, and the dynamics of the relationship. It is unknown to what extent treatment of present ADHD symptoms contributes to decrease of domestic violence. This study wants to investigate the relationship of treating ADHD symptoms and the effect on domestic violence with patients in forensic mental health care who come for treatment of domestic violence and who also meet criteria of ADHD. Besides the role of comorbid psychopathology, profile of the offender and type of the relationship is investigated. The primary objective of the study is to investigate if there is a correlation between decline of ADHD symptoms and decline of domestic violence during treatment in forensic mental health care 16 weeks after start of the treatment. Further we will investigate the role of potential covariates and other predictors like: a) severity of ADHD symptoms, b) extent of presence of borderline personality disorder, c) extent of presence of antisocial personality disorder, d) presence of mood disorder, e) presence of anxiety disorder, f) presence of substance use disorder, g) profile of the offender, h) type of the relationship according to Johnson and i) compliance with the treatment.
