Assessing Risk of Other-Directed Violence in Children and Adolescents

Green Clock Hours: 1.00 - 1.25

In recent decades, news stories of tragedies associated with youth violence have become more commonplace. As the factors associated with these acts of violence are analyzed, sadly, it often becomes apparent that “red flags” existed but were missed (Vaughn et al., 2020).

It is critical that behavioral health professionals who work with children and adolescents have the skills needed to recognize the risk of other-directed violence among youth. This course will provide an overview of risk factors and warning signs of other-directed violence among young people, as well as protective factors. You will also learn current best practices for screening and assessing youth for risk of other-directed violence, and strategies you can implement to reduce that risk.

The goal of this course is to provide addictions, behavioral health counseling, marriage and family therapy, psychology, nursing, and social work professionals in health and human services settings with information about how to assess the risk of other-directed violence among children and adolescents.
