Forensic psychologists, mental health professionals, and legal professionals working with violent offenders turn to the Handbook of Violence Risk Assessment as the primary reference for the field. With the considerable changes in the field, the second edition will include new and revised instruments that enable forensic psychologists to identify and predict the probable behavior of sex predators and violent offenders. New chapters have been added to cover legal issues, numeric measures, brief and emerging measures along with five chapters on recently released tests.
