Know your options for mitigating workplace or targeted violence risk
Psychological evaluations of violence risk often referred to as behavioral threat assessment, are widely recognized as the most effective means of determining whether an individual is on a pathway to violence. Our on-staff Forensic and Clinical Psychologist regularly conducts Indirect Threat Assessments, Direct Violence Risk Evaluations and Fitness for Duty Evaluations – alone or in combination. These three types of psychological assessments make up a comprehensive threat identification and management process. We created this comparison chart to help you understand the different types of violence risk assessments and prepare for a conversation about which may be best for your unique situation.
The below table outlines the factors which determine the most appropriate type of assessment and resulting recommendations and interventions. You can also download a copy of the comparison table by clicking the ‘Download Now’ button below.
