9780199924554: International Handbook of Threat Assessment

Threat assessment is a method used by mental health and law enforcement professionals to assess the risk of intended violence toward a specific target, such as attacks and assassinations of public figures, workplace homicides, mass murders, school shootings, and acts of terrorism, both domestic and foreign. Beginning with studies by the U.S. Secret Service twenty years ago, the research and interest in this field has accelerated over the past decade with published scholarship and emerging professional organizations.

International Handbook of Threat Assessment offers a definition of the foundations of threat assessment, systematically explores its fields of practice, and provides information and instruction on the best practices of threat assessment. The volume is divided into three sections. Section I defines the difference between threat assessment and traditional violence risk assessment and discusses threat assessment terminology and practice, contemporary understanding of threats, warning behaviors concerning targeted violence, and the legal basis of threats and targeted violence interventions. Section II elaborates on the various domains of threat assessment, such as workplace violence, public figure attacks, school and campus violence, insider threats, honor-based violence, computer-modeling of violent intent, targeted domestic violence, anonymous threats, and cyberthreats. Section III presents the functions of a number of threat assessment individuals and units, including the UK Fixated Threat Assessment Centre, the LAPD Threat Management Unit, Australia's Problem Behaviour Program, and the U.S. Navy Criminal Investigative Service, among others. This book will serve as the standard reference volume in the field of threat assessment and will be invaluable to mental health and criminal justice professionals who practice threat assessment or are interested in understanding this new field of research.

Review:


"Meloy and Hoffmann-two of the world's premiere scholars of threat assessment-have brought together an 'A-List' of international contributors to elucidate in clear, jargon-free prose the implications for practice and policy of cutting-edge research on threats and those who make them. This is a remarkably comprehensive work that needs to be within arm's reach of every professional who deals with people at high risk of violent behavior." -- John Monahan, PhD, Shannon Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of Virginia


"This is a comprehensive fusion of scholarly research and field experience, from a group of world authorities in the multidisciplinary domain of threat assessment. It is a cutting-edge tool in the prevention of targeted violence." -- Michele Pathé, MBBS, MD, FRANZCP, Adjunct Professor and Senior Forensic Psychiatrist, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia


"This book contains a treasure trove of crystallized wisdom by the world's leading threat assessment researchers. It combines the latest science with highly practical approaches to assessing threats in various contexts. Every serious threat assessment professional should read it." -- Phillip Resnick, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University


"...provides a very valuable overview of the threat assessment and management discipline, and offers both much to learn from and direction for what still needs to be done. An impressive array of practitioners and thinkers have contributed to this volume, and everyone can benefit from it."--Ali Soufan, Former FBI Special Agent; Chairman, The Soufan Group; and Author, The Black Banners


"The International Handbook of Threat Assessment will enhance one's core understanding of threat assessment and case management as it relates to a variety of today's most significant areas of risk. The editors have brought together an assemblage of contemporary subject matter experts who provide valuable knowledge and insights to all threat assessment professionals who are routinely challenged to keep their clients safe from harm. This is a book that I will certainly maintain in my reference library."--John Lane, Founder, Association of Threat Assessment Professionals
