International Handbook of Threat Assessment (Paperback)

£88.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

In recent history, planned violent attacks have persisted in the United States and abroad. Ranging from targeted attacks on private individuals, public figures, schools, universities, corporations, and public venues, among others, these attacks have continued to illustrate the need for improved threat assessment and management efforts at local and national levels.



In the few years since its publication in 2014, the International Handbook of Threat Assessment has become the gold standard textbook for the prevention of targeted violence. With this new edition, editors J. Reid Meloy and Jens Hoffmann have expanded their landmark text, reflecting the rise of scholarship and growth within the field of threat assessment and management. The book spans across disciplines and explores the foundations of threat assessment, the fields of practice in which

it is utilized, and provides detail on practical applications from the most notable threat assessors and programs in North America, Europe, and Australia. Since the first edition, new chapters focusing on lone actor terrorism, insider threats, cyberthreats, the use of artificial intelligence, bystander

effects, and enhanced interviewing techniques, offer new guidance for threat assessment professionals.



International Handbook of Threat Assessment is the comprehensive resource for mental health practitioners, law enforcement, and professionals working to prevent targeted violence. This guide will serve as inspiration for further research and equip those working to intercept harm with the necessary tools for intervention.

Dr. Reid Meloy is a board-certified forensic psychologist and internationally recognized expert in threat assessment. He consults on cases in North America and Europe and is a widely published author and researcher. He is a Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego, School of Medicine, and a faculty member at the San Diego Psychoanalytic Center. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences and past President of the American Academy of Forensic Psychology. He has been a consultant to the Behavioral Analysis Units of the FBI for the past two decades. Dr. Jens Hoffmann is a forensic psychologist and head of the Institute of Psychology and Threat Management, based in Darmstadt near Frankfurt, Germany. Dr. Hoffmann has published more than seventy scientific papers and book chapters and has been a leader in the professional acceptance of threat assessment throughout Europe. In his role as an expert, Dr. Hoffmann assisted the German Bundestag in rendering the act of stalking a criminal offense in Germany. He is the former President of the Association of European Threat Assessment Professionals (AETAP). He was also a founding associate editor of the Journal of Threat Assessment and Management.
