Book description

The Handbook of Violence Risk Assessment, Second Edition, builds on the first edition?s comprehensive discussion of violence risk assessment instruments with an update of research on established tools and the addition of new chapters devoted to recently developed risk assessment tools.

Featuring chapters written by the instrument developers themselves, this handbook reviews the most frequently used violence risk assessment instruments?both actuarial and structured professional judgment?that professionals use to inform and structure their judgments about violence risk. Also included are broader chapters that address matters such as the consideration of psychopathy and how the law shapes violence risk assessment.

Already the primary reference for practitioners, researchers, and legal professionals in this area, this second edition?s easy-to-access, comprehensive, and current information will make it an indispensable reference for those in the field.
