The study aims to map the treatment perspectives of international experts on treating mentally ill offenders (MIO) in a forensic psychiatric centre (FPC) using the Delphi method. The four-round Delphi study reveals high conformity on the proposed treatment-related issues. However, some points of divergence remain. Three controversies underpinning these disagreements are discussed. The first regards the treatment and control debate, the second concerns the dual role of assessment in forensic mental health care and the third describes potential entry conditions for treatment in a FPC. Further research is needed to scientifically underpin the above mentioned debates. In this regard, the study suggests a close collaboration between practitioners and researchers.
