Understanding and Assessing Violence
In this Webinar:
The prodigious rates of violence in our country establish a need for an understanding and accurate assessment of violence risk. This Webinar will address these concerns by providing participants with a developmental understanding of violence and a method for assessing violence risk.
To more effectively deal with the monumental public health problem of violence in our country it is important to integrate knowledge from several disciplines to enhance our understanding of the numerous factors that contribute to an individual’s potential for violence. In this webinar, Dr. Lisa Firestone, a leading expert on violence, will integrate findings from the fields of neuroscience, attachment, and psychology.
