This paper reports a study of recidivism rates following psychodynamic psychotherapy amongst male offenders with intellectual disabilities. The recipients were 18 men who had been diverted to the clinical psychology service for adults with intellectual disabilities from the criminal justice system. Thirteen participated in treatment and five refused it during assessment. Participants were followed up for 4 years after treatment. Of the 13 who completed treatment two re‐offended. All five of the men who refused treatments re‐offended. In view of the preliminary nature of these findings they are discussed in relation to methodological issues and future research.
