Mental Disorder and Violence Risk, Presented by Dr. Stephen Hart

Friday, June 21, 2019 -
8:30am to 4:30pm

This in-person workshop on Mental Disorder and Violence Risk is presented by Dr. Stephen Hart. There is, by now, no doubt that mental disorder is associated with increased risk for violence, but that association is by no means clear or simple. Dr. Hart will review the research and clinical literature to identify and explain the mental health problems most relevant to violence, focusing on psychosis, personality disorder, paraphilic disorder, and substance use.

He will also discuss how best to incorporate mental health problems in the practice of violence risk assessment and management, including formulation (case conceptualization) of violence risk and the development of case management plans.
