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.
