Editorial Reviews


"Meloy and Hoffmann-two of the world's premiere scholars of threat assessment-have brought together an 'A-List' of international contributors to elucidate in clear, jargon-free prose the implications for practice and policy of cutting-edge research on threats and those who make them. This is a remarkably comprehensive work that needs to be within arm's reach of every professional who deals with people at high risk of violent behavior." -- John Monahan, PhD, Shannon Distinguished Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, University of Virginia

"This is a comprehensive fusion of scholarly research and field experience, from a group of world authorities in the multidisciplinary domain of threat assessment. It is a cutting-edge tool in the prevention of targeted violence." -- Michele Pathé, MBBS, MD, FRANZCP, Adjunct Professor and Senior Forensic Psychiatrist, Griffith University, Queensland, Australia

"This book contains a treasure trove of crystallized wisdom by the world's leading threat assessment researchers. It combines the latest science with highly practical approaches to assessing threats in various contexts. Every serious threat assessment professional should read it." -- Phillip Resnick, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University

"...provides a very valuable overview of the threat assessment and management discipline, and offers both much to learn from and direction for what still needs to be done. An impressive array of practitioners and thinkers have contributed to this volume, and everyone can benefit from it."--Ali Soufan, Former FBI Special Agent; Chairman, The Soufan Group; and Author,
The Black Banners

The International Handbook of Threat Assessment will enhance one's core understanding of threat assessment and case management as it relates to a variety of today's most significant areas of risk. The editors have brought together an assemblage of contemporary subject matter experts who provide valuable knowledge and insights to all threat assessment professionals who are routinely challenged to keep their clients safe from harm. This is a book that I will certainly maintain in my reference library."--John Lane, Founder, Association of Threat Assessment Professionals
