This on-demand professional training program on an Introduction to Violence Risk/Threat Assessment: Legal Issues is presented by Brianne Layden, PhD, in partnership with Protect International Risk and Safety Services.
Every violence risk/threat assessment has the potential to wind up being reviewed before a court, tribunal, or review board. For this reason, violence risk/threat assessment professionals need to understand the key legal issues relevant to the services they deliver.
In this program, Dr. Layden identifies the major legal duties that influence the practice of violence risk/threat assessment across jurisdictions. She also discusses how these duties sometimes conflict and provide recommendations for avoiding, resolving, or mitigating such conflicts. She uses case vignettes from her practice to illustrate key points.
