Gain a better understanding of how formal risk assessment can significantly reduce the risk of violent outcomes and liability for those making release recommendations.

Determining an individual's risk for violence is a heavy clinical burden.

You will become familiar with practice guidelines for violence risk assessment and appropriate objective measures to assess risk of violence. The challenges and utility of the models of violence risk assessment, along with evaluations, will be reviewed.
