Workplace Violence: Practical Considerations for Mental Health Professionals in Consultation, Assessment, and Management of Risk

Philip Saragoza et al. Psychiatr Clin North Am.

Abstract

Workplace predatory violence has been the focus of increased study over the past 30 years, leading to a more sophisticated understanding of the factors that contribute to it, and important considerations for its assessment and management. Risk assessment professionals involved in workplace violence consultations should be mindful of issues specific to the workplace context and the principles of threat assessment to provide a more precise opinion of risk, to inform and enhance critical decisions regarding the employment status of the individual of concern, security measures, possible treatment options, and other management responses, while being mindful of the employee's certain rights.

Keywords: Direct threat; Targeted violence; Threat assessment; Workplace violence.
