This webinar on HCR-20-V3 Overview is presented by Kevin S. Douglas, PhD.

During this webinar Dr. Douglas discusses the revision process for the development of Version 3, outlines the changes from Version 2 to Version 3, provides an overview of the items, and discusses how the measure can be used in practice (implementation issues).

The HCR-20 is the most commonly used violence risk assessment measure across 44 different countries. It helps professionals in correctional, mental health, and forensic settings make decisions about who poses higher versus lower risk for violence, either within institutions or in the community, and to devise and monitor violence risk management plans. The HCR-20 (Version 2) has been evaluated in more than 100 studies and implemented or evaluated in at least 32 countries. Version 3 maintains the basic features of Version 2 but has additional features that help decision makers to determine which risk factors are most relevant at the individual level, how to produce a meaningful case formulation, how to develop helpful risk management plans, and how to make decisions about the level of violence risk. Some of its items have been changed as well.
