Please note this is an online course.
This course is designed to provide a practical map through the marshy minefield of uncertainty in risk assessment for violence. Recent research on the validity of psychiatry predictions of violence will be presented. The demographics of violence and the specific incidences of violence in different psychiatric diagnoses will be reviewed. Dangerousness will be discussed in persons with psychosis, mania, depression, and substance abuse. Special attention will be given to persons with paranoid delusions, command hallucinations, premenstrual dysphoric disorders, and homosexual panic. Personality traits associated with violence will be discussed. Childhood antecedents of adult violence will be covered. Advice will be given on taking a history from potentially dangerous patients and countertransference feelings. Instruction will be given in the elucidation and assessment of violent threats and “perceived intentionality.”
Speaker: Phillip J. Resnick, MD
