ECT is still in use and sometimes is the most effective treatment for severe conditions. However this treatment has to be used judiciously and decision should be made carefully by expert experienced Psychiatrist. I am not sure what you mean by violent patients but that itself is not a reason for using ECT.
Next Steps
Discuss with Psychiatrist and ask for list of pros and cons and alternative treatments.
