Program Description

This live series on HCR-20 V3 Practice Cases is presented by Drs. Stephen Hart, Kelly Watt, and Brianne Layden.

This is a live webinar series focusing on four practice cases using the Historical-Clinical-Risk-Management-20 Version 3 (HCR-20 V3) to assess and manage violence risk. Each of the practice cases are derived from real, sanitized cases across correctional and forensic psychiatric settings. Participants will be able to sharpen and maintain their skills administering the HCR-20 V3 with the added opportunity of consulting with internationally recognized experts on each case. Each practice case will include an overview of the HCR-20 V3, a self-directed case review and completion of the HCR-20 V3 worksheet, and case review / discussion over the course of 3 weeks. Participants should expect to devote approximately 2 to 4 hours each week to this case study series.

This case study series will give participants an opportunity to practice administering the HCR-20 V3 in consultation with internationally recognized experts. Emphasis will be placed on how to rate the presence and relevance of each of the HCR-20 V3 items, how to formulate about past violence, how to scenario plan about future violence, how to develop case management strategies and tactics, and how to provide summary judgments about overall risk.

HCR-20 V3

The HCR-20 (Version 2; Webster, Douglas, Eaves, & Hart, 1997) has become the world’s most widely used and best validated violence risk assessment and management instrument. It has been translated into 20 languages and adopted or evaluated in more than 35 countries. It helps professionals in diverse settings make decisions about who poses higher versus lower risk for violence, either within institutions or in the community, and to devise and monitor violence risk management plans.

Note: An electronic copy of the HCR-20-V3 Manual is provided for review so having a hard copy of the manual is not required to complete this training.

Upon completion of this case study, participants should be able to:

  • Describe an overview of the administration of the HCR-20 V3
  • Describe structured professional judgement (SPJ) guidelines for the assessment and management of risk for general violence
  • Describe the rating, formulation, and conceptualization of risk for violence for Case #5
