Review "This work establishes a sound foundation for best practices in the evaluation of potentially aggressive youths. Speaking directly to mental health examiners, Borum and Verhaagen satisfy the clinician's need for a realistic way to meet the mandates of evidence-based practice in this area. Their advice is comprehensive, clear, concise, and creative. There is value in this work for all who perform these evaluations, from beginners to seasoned professionals."--Thomas Grisso, PhD, University of Massachusetts Medical School"Is a given juvenile likely to be violent, and if so, what should be done to prevent it? Clinicians perplexed by these questions now can find invaluable guidance in this concise but comprehensive manual. Borum and Verhaagen offer down-to-earth suggestions for assessment and clinical management, based on the latest research and leavened with much clinical wisdom. Every mental health professional working with juveniles should read--and reread--this book."--Paul S. Appelbaum, MD, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons"A practical and cogent guide to handling one of the most vexing issues in clinical practice today. Borum and Verhaagen provide a clear and up-to-date overview of research on juvenile violence; describe a comprehensive, evidence-based model for conducting violence risk assessments; and offer seasoned guidance for designing effective interventions to reduce violence risk. This is a book that deserves wide adoption in the classroom and that needs to be within arm’s reach of every clinician who deals with children and adolescents."--John Monahan, PhD, University of Virginia School of Law"Assessing and Managing Violence Risk in Juveniles is an extraordinary resource for professionals responsible for conducting risk assessments and designing effective intervention plans to address the needs of youth.
