Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Using a firm research and theoretical approach, this volume brings together experts in the fields of health, mental health, and criminal justice to predict future violence. In language accessible to clinicians, Assessing Dangerousness discusses the prediction of homicide in spouse abuse, of child abuse using the Child Abuse Potential Inventory, of further violence by sexual offenders, and of further assault by batterers. The contributors, wellknown in their areas of expertise, discuss accurate measurement using tested instruments as well as the role of clinical observations. The introductory chapter presents the theoretical and clinical issues involved in predicting violence in general, and the final chapter summarizes the major points and presents the health and judicial implications of the findings. Learning how to predict violence is an important skill. This book is the equivalent of a university course on the subject. --Ron MacIssac, review in What's Happening, Victoria, B.C. This text addresses one of the most difficult issues in the assessment and treatment of violent individuals--assessing their degree of dangerousness and risk of recidivism. Assessing Dangerousness takes the reader through an educated discussion of the different models for assessing dangerousness that have appeared since the 1950s and 1960s up until the present and, most significantly, presents up-to-date approaches to tackling such assessment areas as physical and sexual abuse, sexual assault, and wife assault. Drawing on the research and clinical expertise of prominent individuals, the text accomplishes its task of describing the importance and the limitations to assessing risk of dangerousness. Thevolume should appeal to professionals in law, criminal justice, psychology, social work, psychiatry, and many related disciplines. --David A. Wolfe, University of Western Ontario Highly recommended. --Family Violence & Sexual Assault Bulletin Book Club
