Diversity Issues in Violence Risk Assessment and Management, Presented by Dr. Stephen Hart

Thursday, June 20, 2019 -
8:30am to 4:30pm

This in-person workshop on Diversity Issues in Violence Risk Assessment & Management is presented by Dr. Stephen Hart. Human diversity is one of the biggest challenges facing professionals whose work includes assessment and management of violence risk. The people we deliver services to can differ greatly with respect to factors such as ethnicity (race, culture, language, spirituality, etc.), sexuality (biological sex, gender identity, sexual interest, etc.), and age (biopsychosocial maturity, developmental stage, etc.).

In this workshop, Dr. Hart will present a general framework for understanding diversity and its impact on violence risk, as well as principles for delivering evidence-based services to assess and manage violence risk that both respect and accommodate diversity. He will illustrate the framework and principles using case studies.
