In 2013 the long-awaited Version 3 of the HCR-20 was published. This assessment instrument uses a Structured Professional Judgment approach to threat assessment and risk management. At the International launch of the HCR-V3 in Edinburgh, Scotland a one-day conference was held where international experts involved in the development of Version 3 presented on various topics related to threat assessment and risk management with the new HCR-20 Version 3 (HCR-V3).
One of the speakers at this day-long conference, Dr. Stephen Hart, is an internationally known expert on threat assessment and risk management who helped shape the evolution of the structured professional judgment approach to risk assessment.
