Section A: A review of literature focused on African Caribbean men with diagnoses of both conduct disorder (as an indicator of antisocial behaviour) and severe mental illness. The review concludes that disorganised infant attachments appear to be predictive of conduct disorder, psychosis and poor engagement with services in a reciprocal 'vicious circle'.
