With Essential Writings in Violence Risk Assessment and Management, mental health and legal practitioners have quick access to the most important peer-reviewed writings in this burgeoning field. The 31 journal articles and book chapters in this collection provide a complete foundational curriculum on the subject.

Topics include:
· the historical shift from “dangerousness” to violence risk assessment
· the emergence of actuarial violence prediction
· clinical prediction and assessment
· the actuarial–versus-clinical controversy
· decision making
· treatments, security and program planning.

Covering a field that crosses civil, forensic and correctional boundaries, this book is a valuable resource for clinicians, lawyers, judges, law enforcement officials, health and correctional administrators and journalists?and anyone working in the forensic system. It is also of interest to anyone intrigued by how the forensic system assesses and manages people deemed to be violent, and how decision makers manage the often precarious balance between protecting the public and according the accused the greatest degree of freedom possible.

The book’s six main sections are preceded by introductions, written by the editors, that succinctly encapsulate the main arguments discussed by the contributors. Taken together, these introductions provide a concise summary of a complex, fascinating field.

Contributors include: Hy Bloom, Randy Borum, Michael Collins, Kevin S. Douglas, Joel A. Dvoskin, Marianne Farkas, Gregg J. Gagliardi, Grant T. Harris, N. Zoe Hilton, Sheilagh Hodgins, Harry Kennedy, Glyn Lewis, Charles W. Lidz, Thomas R. Litwack, Dale E. McNiel, John Monahan, Douglas Mossman, Denis Murphy, Tonia L. Nicholls, Vernon L.
