Reviews and Endorsements

"Risk Assessment in Forensic Practice is an astonishing accomplishment. David Crighton provides a trenchant and sweeping analysis of cutting-edge research on the prediction and management of violent behavior. Historically grounded and written in clear, jargon-free prose, this work is sure to have an immense and long-lasting impact on the field." - John Monahan, PhD, John S. Shannon Distinguished Professor of Law, Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia, USA.

"David Crighton has done the field a great service in writing this book. He provides an analysis of contemporary forensic practice that is both thoughtful and balanced and which invites the reader to engage with foundational knowledge about the history, meaning, and nature of risk. David then, rather gently it should be said, draws our attention to the problems that will inevitably surface if we continue to simply follow convention, before offering some concrete suggestions for strengthening and advancing practice. Whilst this is both an easy and engaging read, David challenges us all to do much better. Please take the time to read this important contribution!" - Professor Andrew Day, School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Melbourne, Australia.

"This book is an articulate and authoritative examination of risk assessment in forensic practice. An in-depth exploration of both current and historic issues in theory and practice that will be a catalyst for much needed discussion and reform. An invaluable and accessible resource for forensic psychologists and other scholars, front-line practitioners and policy makers." - Dr Roxanne Khan, Director of Honour Abuse Research Matrix (HARM), University of Central Lancashire, UK.
