Borum, Randy & Verhaagen, David. Assessing and Managing Violence Risk in Juveniles.
Assessing and Managing Violence Risk in Juveniles is a practical and accessible resource for any mental health practitioner working with youth at risk for violent behavior. It presents a comprehensive framework for evaluating juveniles in the justice system or those whose behavior in school, therapy sessions, or other contexts raises concern about violence. Detailed case examples illustrate the authors' scientifically grounded approach to selecting appropriate instruments, analyzing and communicating assessment results, and designing effective interventions. Special problems addressed include bullying, sexual aggression, firesetting, and homicide. The book also examines the development of aggressive conduct problems and their connections to other emotional and behavioral disorders.
