Psychological Approaches to Risk & Violence

Go Back


All mental health care professionals have to attend to risk in their clinical practice; whether it is assessing risk of potential harm to self; assessing risk of harm to others; or offering interventions to people whose mental health problems may lead them to break social rules and criminal laws. In this work shop, we will look at the mental phenomena that underly risky states of mind; and explore social, individual and relational risk factors for violence and criminal rule breaking. We will also look at available interventions . By the end of the workshop, participants should have a better understanding of what makes people risky, and what interventions may be helpful to risk the risk of harm to self and harm to others
