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.
