"Violence Risk: Assessment and Management" provides background and information to mental health professionals working in forensic settings on release decision making, with a particular focus on violent offenders. Emphasizing how best to achieve the safe release of individuals from psychiatric hospitals and prisons in a way that protects society while avoiding the undue restriction of individuals, each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as law, risk, diagnosis, evidence, and assessment tools, and includes chapter summaries and case illustrations. Featuring a new section on risk management, this second edition brings the material up-to-date and enlarges the section on risk variables.
