  • Description
  • Details

Mental health practitioners are confronted with the difficult task of assessing the risk that offenders pose to the general public. This comprehensive volume provides practitioners with the knowledge and insight necessary to conduct violence risk assessments, and to synthesize clinical and research data into comprehensive reports and oral testimony.

Violence risk assessment requires a well-formulated and comprehensive risk management plan. Andrade and the authors present that plan, and demonstrate how it can be clearly implemented in practice. With numerous clinical case studies, this book illustrates the process of conducting violence risk assessments, outlines the tools used in these evaluations, and explains how information is translated into an overall assessment and guide for future risk management.
