Malcolm Bass authored a callous and cruel policy outlining how he believed people with a BPD Dx should be treated. It was an abusive protocol that contributed to the death of Zoe (@AutismMH) It was also used as the basis for a similar policy, but with children. It was abusive.
I cannot even begin to imagine how awful it must be for those affected to see this man being publicly supported by his colleagues on here. Despite the horrific consequences his policy had. The problem with Malcolm Bass is that there’s at least one Malcolm Bass in every MH Trust.
Before anyone starts accusing me singling out and bullying Malcolm Bass, I’ll publicly call out some other MH profs. Here’s Dr Simon Graham telling GP’s how to treat those patients with a PD Dx who report physical health symptoms. This shit is dangerous: (…) ImageImage
Here’s Christine Rushworth, cognitive behaviour therapist, discussing in a presentation for GP’s, how those with a BPD Dx are a drain on resources, as well as some other negative descriptions. These attitudes so often go unchallenged: ImageImageImage
Gill Green and Steven Colgan giving the green light for abusive practice to go ahead under the guise of “therapeutic” positive risk taking. There’s nothing therapeutic about withholding care to someone in agonising distress. It’s abusive. Image
Here’s Dr Graham Ingram discussing the PD Construct, as well as diagnosis of PD in primary care, during a presentation to educate Primary Care staff. Please note the language used: ImageImageImage
Here’s a presentation for GP’s in Primary care about BPD. Too much wrong with it to screenshot - just have a look at the whole thing - written by Dr Ranjeet Shah, consultant psychiatrist at TEWV:…
This, written by Steve Morgan, speaking about people trying to get answers and justice after serious incidents as a result of positive risk taking, as carrying out a “witch-hunt” and “little merit in perpetuating a situation where staff feel guilty until proven innocent” Image

This is hard to write, because it’s upsetting for me, but I think it’s important to share. I want to talk about confidentiality during NHS Therapy. I’ve already spoken about some specific issues with confidentiality in the NHS, but today I’ll be focusing on Therapy. A thread👇🏻
When I was referred for an assessment appt with a psychologist at IAPT, confidentiality was explained to me. I was told that everything would be kept confidential, unless there was a risk of harm to myself or others, but that I’d be told first about them breaking confidentiality.
In that appointment, once we’d established that we would be going ahead with Cognitive Analytic Therapy, the psychologist asked for my permission to share anything she deemed relevant with my CPN. I agreed to that arrangement.
