Violence and Aggression Assessment of Veterans with Eric Elbogen

PART PROGRAM  This workshop engaged participants with a leading expert on forensic mental health issues with veterans, Eric Elbogen PhD, who reviewed and discussed up-to-date scientific literatures on risk and protective factors associated with aggression post-deployment and on violence in military populations generally. Systematic risk assessment was discussed and participants made a ‘walk through’ of a violence screening (with the VIO-SCAN) and a systematic violence risk assessment.
