Extending Violence Reduction Principles to Justice-Involved Persons With Mental Illness
This chapter examines whether—and, if so, how—principles of violence risk reduction can be extended to justice-involved persons who have a serious mental illness. It focuses on interventions that take place with adults, rather than with children or adolescents, and to interventions that occur in the community, rather than in hospitals, jails, or prisons. It first addresses the state of the evidence on reducing violence risk among the population of interest, and then points out gaps in this evidence base that can only be filled by future research. It concludes by describing the implications for current practice of the state of the existing evidence, gaps and all.
