(create) We focus in this chapter on whether-and, if so, how-principles of violence risk reduction can be extended to justice-involved persons who have a serious mental illness. We limit our consideration to 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. As with the other chapters in this book, we first address the state of the evidence on reducing violence risk among the population of interest, and we then point out gaps in this evidence base that can only be filled by future research. We conclude by describing what we take to be the implications for current practice of the state of the existing evidence, gaps and all. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2012 APA, all rights reserved).
