This online unit from Griffith University, delivered online by Open Universities Australia, explores theoretical and empirical approaches to risk assessment, in order to gain a deeper understanding of the aims and uses of risk assessment and management.
Advanced Assessment & Management in Forensic Mental Health examines the different factors which form risk assessments, and management policies and practices in forensic mental health. Through examining the risk factors related to different mental disorders, along with different kinds of criminal behaviour, you will be able to integrate information to inform applied risk assessments in forensic mental health environments.
The unit will also help you identify problems arising from tendencies to over-predict negative outcomes, alongside false-positive and false-negative predictions. You will develop skills for evaluating which assessment tools and methods are appropriate for different situations, and how to apply them effectively. Individual-level and environmental approaches will also be considered in detail.
