Despite the best, and at times the worst, efforts of systems of care ‘to include’, there remains a group of people whose refusal to be included remains a problem both for themselves and for society as a whole. In this chapter, we seek to relocate the problems arising from the antisocial stance at the heart of this refusal from the internal world of the refuser to phenomena associated with what we call psychosocial dis-memberment and the ‘un-housed mind’. We explore the complex reciprocal relationship between the housed and the un-housed, between society’s members and those whom we dis-member, and we consider some possible implications for individual workers, staff teams and organisations who are tasked with attempting to house, re-member or otherwise accommodate some of the most vulnerable members of our society.
