Abstract: Clients labeled psychotic and having records of violence have long been seen as dangerous and resistant. Within a medical disease orientation, institutionalization, social control, and medication are applied in treating and rehabilitating these clients. By means of a case illustration, this article shows that violence and psychosis are understandable and predictable. From a strengths perspective, clients with psychosis and records of violence are victims of an oppressive social environment. Empathic understanding and normal interactions within a supportive social environment can rehabilitate them and help them to recover in the community.
