Specialized Violence – Honor Based Violence

Specialized Violence – Honor Based Violence


1 Hour | 1 CE (CEU)


Program Description

This webinar on Specialized Violence – Honor-Based Violence is presented by Dr. Randy Kropp. There has been increased attention in recent years to violent behavior that is specifically, or in part, motivated by honor. With this heightened awareness, there has been considerable debate regarding concerns that the term “honor-based violence” is culturally-bound or denotes “honorable” behavior. This webinar provides a conceptual and definitional overview of honor-based violence in an effort to address these concerns. Further, the need for specific risk assessment guidelines is reviewed, along with general principles and best practices regarding the assessment and management of honor-based violence. There is also a discussion of specific approaches used for assessing and managing honor-based violence, including the PATRIARCH, a set of structured professional judgment guidelines for assessing risk for honor-based violence. A case example is used to illustrate the use of the PATRIARCH in practice.
