Book Description

The companion volume to Good Practice in Risk Assessment I looks at further issues in the field of risk assessment. Managers are under increasing pressure to predict risk accurately, and face serious consequences for failure. This new collection explores the arguments and means of assessment in a clear and accessible manner and with a practice-based emphasis. The contributors consider subjects as varied as child adoption, violence, mental health, alcohol and suicide in a wide range of social care settings, all linked by the difficulty of accurately assessing risk.
