Winner of the APA's Manfred S. Guttmacher Award, 2001 Legislatures, courts, and the public have come to expect that mental health professionals will protect them from violent acts by persons with mental disorders. Rethinking Risk Assessment: The MacArthur Study of Mental Disorder and Violence tells the story of a pioneering investigation that challenges preconceptions about violence and suggests an innovative approach to predicting its occurrence. The dramatic new findings presented in this long-anticipated volume will change the way clinicians and judges do their work.
