Violence Risk Assessment (Case Scenario 6)
Daubert
The Daubert standard is a legal standard used to determine the admissibility of expert
testimony, which includes psychological and psychiatric evidence. In order to pass the Daubert
standard, it must demonstrate a valid scientific method, reliable methods, and a known or
potential error rate. The data collected in this case study meets the Daubert standard because it
involves multiple sources of data, such as interviews, collateral information, and assessment
tools that have been developed using valid and reliable methods. The case study also includes an
assessment of the individual’s past behavior and risk factors, which can help to determine the
known or potential error rate. .
Interview Information
The interview information contained in the case study provides important insights into
the individual’s current situation and behavior. This information can be used to assess the risk of
violence and to develop a risk management plan. Research has shown that risk factors such as
past violent behavior, mental illness, substance abuse, and access to weapons can increase the
risk of future violence (Mulvey et al., 2003; Webster et al., 2017). The interview information can
also help to identify potential triggers for violence, which can be managed through strategies
such as crisis management and safety planning (Mulvey et al., 2003; Webster et al., 2017).
Collateral information
The collateral information contained in the case study provides additional insight into the
individual’s current situation and behavior. This information can also be used to assess the risk of
3
violence and to develop a risk management plan. Collateral information can include information
from family members, friends, employers, and other sources, which can help to identify potential
risk factors, such as access to weapons, or the presence of mental illness or substance abuse.
Collateral information can also help to identify potential protective factors, such as support from
family and friends or access to appropriate mental health services (Mulvey et al., 2003; Webster
et al., 2017).
Recommendations
The recommendations report should include an assessment of the individual’s risk of
violence and a risk management plan. The risk assessment should include an evaluation of the
individual’s past behavior, current risk factors, and potential triggers for violence. The risk
management plan should include strategies for managing the risk of violence, such as crisis
management and safety planning, as well as recommendations for accessing appropriate mental
health services and support from family and friends (Mulvey et al., 2003; Webster et al., 2017).
The recommendations should also consider the ethical guidelines of a professional psychology
association, such as the American Psychological Association (APA). The APA ethical guidelines
state that psychologists should strive to protect the rights and welfare of individuals, respect the
dignity of all people, and recognize the importance of cultural, individual, and role differences
(American Psychological Association, 2017).
Ethical Guidelines
The recommendations report should align with the ethical guidelines of a professional
psychology association. The APA ethical guidelines state that psychologists should strive to
protect the rights and welfare of individuals, respect the dignity of all people, and recognize the
4
importance of cultural, individual, and role differences (American Psychological Association,
2010). The report should also consider the individual’s autonomy and capacity to make decisions,
as well as the potential for coercion or involuntary treatment (American Psychological
Association, 2017). Additionally, psychologists should strive to provide accurate, up-to-date
information about the individual’s risk of violence and should provide clear explanations and
recommendations regarding the risk management plan (American Psychological Association,
2017).
