8 Hours | 8 CEs
This HCR Practice case series on HCR-20 V3 Practice Cases is presented by Stephen Hart, PhD, Kelly Watt, PhD, and Brianne Layden, PhD.
This live webinar series focuses on four practice cases using the Historical-Clinical-Risk-Management-20 Version 3 (HCR-20 V3) to assess and manage violence risk. Each of the practice cases are derived from real, sanitized cases across correctional and forensic psychiatric settings. Participants will be able to sharpen and maintain their skills administering the HCR-20 V3 with the added opportunity of consulting with internationally recognized experts on each case.
This practice case will include an overview of the HCR-20 V3, a self-directed case review and completion of the HCR-20 V3 worksheet, and case review / discussion over the course of 3 weeks. Participants should expect to devote approximately 2 to 4 hours each week to this case study series.
This case study will give participants an opportunity to practice administering the HCR-20 V3 with review from internationally recognized experts. Emphasis will be placed on how to rate the presence and relevance of each of the HCR-20 V3 items, how to formulate about past violence, how to scenario plan about future violence, how to develop case management strategies and tactics, and how to provide summary judgments about overall risk.
Case #6 focuses on an adult female conducting pharmaceutical research in a private sector organization in Toronto, Canada. She was alleged to have made threatening statements to coworkers regarding firearms and is suspected of suffering from mental health problems. You are tasked complete a violence risk assessment to assist the workplace in deciding what steps, if any, must be taken to ensure the safety of employees.
