Product Description


"[This] volume can be recommended as a general reference source for the field violence risk assessment.... A coherent and solid review of the fundamental ideas, and most consistently–obtained outcomes, of risk assessment research." (The Howard Journal, February 2009)

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

This valuable second edition offers up–to–date information about evidence–based clinical practices in the assessment of violence and related risks. The text is designed to be easily read, with supplemental material included in note form acknowledging the difficulties for researchers in this area and expanding upon the remarkable accomplishments achieved over the past quarter of a century by a range of international researchers. Violence Risk: Assessment and Management discusses the accuracy of prediction and highlights how both the comprehensiveness and relevance of violence assessments could be improved if now well–established findings were to become entrenched in routine clinical and research practice. This volume also places an emphasis on incorporating the clients’ point of view wherever possible. It is strongly suggested that risk assessment and risk management must now become a truly interdisciplinary field of study and practice. Although the authors write the majority of the text, specialist colleagues add essential material on subjects such as averting spousal assault, sex offending, and improving community support. This volume is designed not only for psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses and social workers, but also for lawyers, judges, correctional professionals and government policy specialists.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Rich D on 14 May 2010
Format: Paperback
I think it should be pointed out that this book is written and primarily focussed on legislation and frameworks in Canada and North America. As a UK reader, this left me a little cold and struggling to seek points of relevance for UK based operations.

The book is well written in the main and makes huge reference to works of people like Robert Hare and others like him - some chapters felt more like a bibliography rather than a treatise on the chapter title.

I would not recommend this book due to both the incredibly high cost and the lack of relevance to the UK. If you are in Canada - try and get it cheaper.

excellent overview 30 Mar 2008
By Matt - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent overview of risk assessment. The important topics are succinctly covered, but all the essential material is there. I especially liked the short chapters and the limited number of footnotes. Well worth re-reading the chapters, and the format is conducive to this. Manageable paperback size too.
