""This book describes violence risk assessment in both juveniles and adults, incorporating dynamic and static factors, along with treatment alternatives?..Research and practice are combined quite nicely, along with assessment and treatment. There is something for everyone here."" Score: 91, 4 stars


""Forensic clinicians will find this book to be a valuable reference book as well as a very useful clinical treatment guide relevant to violent offenders.""

--Jeffrey L. Metzner, MD

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.

Key Features:
Investigates the etiology of violent behavior, and provides a review and analysis of recent literature Discusses both adult and youth violence, providing insight into the developmental course of aggressive behavior throughout the lifespan Contains chapters on special populations, including female offenders, intimate partners, psychopathic and mentally ill offenders, and sexually abusive youth Useful to practitioners from various fields including social work, psychology, and psychiatry, as well as students in these disciplines

Ultimately, this book provides practitioners with an understanding of risk assessment, treatment, and risk management, serving as an authoritative guide to applying empirical findings to mental health practice. "
