HCR-20 V3 Practice Case Series Case 6

8 Hours | 8 CEs (CEU)


This HCR Practice case series on HCR-20 V3 Practice Cases is presented by Stephen Hart, PhD, Kelly Watt, PhD, and Brianne Layden, PhD.

This practice case will include an overview of the HCR-20 V3, a self-directed case review and completion of the HCR-20 V3 worksheet, and case review/discussion.

This case study will give participants an opportunity to practice administering the HCR-20 V3 with review from internationally recognized experts. Emphasis will be placed on how to rate the presence and relevance of each of the HCR-20 V3 items, how to formulate about past violence, how to scenario plan about future violence, how to develop case management strategies and tactics, and how to provide summary judgments about overall risk.

Case #6 focuses on an adult female conducting pharmaceutical research in a private sector organization in Toronto, Canada. She was alleged to have made threatening statements to coworkers regarding firearms and is suspected of suffering from mental health problems. You are tasked to complete a violence risk assessment to assist the workplace in deciding what steps, if any, must be taken to ensure the safety of employees.
