This webinar on HCR-20 Research Update is presented by Dr. Kevin Douglas.
The Historical-Clinical-Risk Management 20 (HCR-20) is one of the most frequently used violence risk assessment and management instruments worldwide. It has been translated into 20 languages and adopted or evaluated in 35 countries.
The third version of the HCR-20 (HCR-20 V3) was published in 2013 by Kevin Douglas, Stephen Hart, Chris Webster, and Henrik Belfrage. This webinar provides a brief synthesis of all HCR-20 research and then focus on an up-to-date review of research on the HCR-20 V3. To date, studies on the HCR-20 V3 have been carried out in Canada, USA, UK, Sweden, Norway, Germany, and the Netherlands, with ongoing research being carried out in several additional countries. Findings on the reliability and validity of the HCR-20 V3 have been generally consistent with previous HCR-20 research, and research on the Structured Professional Judgment model more broadly.
The fee for this training program is $100.
This Webinar is intended for criminal justice, mental health, or victim support professionals interested in learning more about the HCR-20 Version 3 or those who are considering implementing the HCR-20-V3 into clinical practice. This webinar is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians.

He is co-author of the Historical-Clinical-Risk Management-20 (HCR-20) violence risk assessment measure, which has been translated into 18 languages and is used broadly around the world (roughly 35 countries) in correctional, forensic, and psychiatric settings to help guide decisions about violence potential and how to reduce it. Dr. Douglas is lead author on the latest (third) revision of the HCR-20, called the HCR:V3. More recently, he has been conducting research on other violence-related adverse experiences, including suicide-related behaviour, and being victimized by violence.
