Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This study investigated the attitudes toward seclusion rooms of a group of hospitalized psychiatric patients who were not at the time secluded. Those patients who had never been secluded endorsed more negative feelings about seclusion room use than did those who had actually been secluded during prior hospitalizations. Women were more critical of the seclusion process than were men.
