Description

This webinar will provide an overview of key ways in which violence risk assessment practices should be developmentally informed when working with adolescents and transition-age youth (approximately 12 to 25 years old).

First, although many of the risk and protective factors relevant to older adults are also relevant to adolescents, certain factors are particularly important during specific developmental periods, including key periods of transition.

Second, the six- to seven-year period typically associated with adolescence (i.e., 12 to 18 years old) is increasingly being recognized as excessively narrow in light of social and neurodevelopmental influences, which have implications for assessing and managing violence risk.

Third, youth and emerging adults generally are more “contextually bound” than more mature adults, with certain social contexts being more salient during particular developmental periods.

A brief case illustrating the application of these developmental considerations will be presented.
