Title: Housing 'unhoused minds' - inter-personality disorder in the organisation?
Authors: Scanlon, C., & Adlam, J.
We begin with a discussion of the psychosocial concepts of 'personality disorder' and 'homelessness' and then seek to re-define and re-locate both from internal world of the patient/client to the psychosocial 'dis-memberment' associated with what we have called the 'unhoused mind'. We then explore the complex reciprocal relationship between, the 'ordered' and the 'dis-ordered', the housed and the unhoused, and consider some possible implications for individual workers, staff teams and organizations who are tasked with attempting to house and/or to care and support such people.
