Presenting a comprehensive framework for conducting a scientifically grounded violence risk assessment, this book is authoritative, current, and practical. The essentials of doing this type of evaluation are reviewed, and available risk appraisal instruments are described for general violence, sexual violence, and spousal violence. The authors provide expert advice on choosing suitable instruments and approaches for particular cases, interpreting the resulting data, and communicating with legal decision makers. A detailed outline shows how to organize assessment findings into an effective final report; a sample completed report is featured in the appendix.

Recensione:

"When it comes to violence risk assessment, mental health professionals can feel lost in a sea of contradictory claims. Finally, Mills et al. have produced a user-friendly map that provides robust, accurate, even-handed, and readable advice about this crucial task. From rising stars in forensic psychology, this is an outstanding contribution to the field, and one that will have a very long shelf life. Buy this book!"--Joel A. Dvoskin, PhD, past president, American Psychology-Law Society; Department of Psychiatry, University of Arizona
 
 "This excellent book provides a practical, evidence-based, step-by-step guide to choosing risk assessment instruments, doing a thorough risk assessment, and conveying your conclusions in a user-friendly report. The authors convey a thorough knowledge of the research literature, but it is also clear that they have been in the trenches. This book is a 'must' for novices who work in forensic settings."--Phillip Resnick, MD, Department of Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University
 
 "When mental health clinicians are asked to assess the risk of violence, their determinations have serious implications for both the patient and the public. To aid clinicians in making these important decisions, Mills et al. offer an evidence-based framework for risk assessment. The authors present essential forensic tools substantiated with current research. Their framework for risk assessment does not end with gathering information and formulating opinions; they also include practical guidelines for developing risk management strategies and reporting risk to the court as well as to other stakeholders in the criminal justice and mental health systems. The authors integrate research and clinical knowledge in a manner that provides clinicians with the state of the art and science of risk assessment. A welcome resource."--Allan E. Barsky, JD, MSW, PhD, School of Social Work, Florida Atlantic University
