This study aimed to describe treatment settings and interventions provided by adolescent forensic inpatient units in four Northern European countries. Data were collected with the Monitoring Area and Phase System (MAPS). Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and qualitative methods. Results showed that there were differences in intake criteria and in theoretical orientation between the units studied. In addition, there were differences in treatment focus. The results can be used in service planning and provision of care in adolescent forensic setting. Exchange of information cross-nationally facilitates the advancement of knowledge and sets parameters for education in the clinical forensic setting.
