Abstract or Summary

The rate of violent risk prediction, assessment and management is of concern given the potential harm to the forensic client, their family and the wider community. Considerable work has been conducted in order to improve the methodology used for risk prediction and assessment. This text provides an overview of each stage of the process with reference to: two-by-two prediction accuracy table, clinical judgement and actuarial risk, static and dynamic factors, Hare's Psychopathy Checklist, and The Historical, Clinical, and Risk Managment-20 (HCR-20).
