This one day conference will cover a broad range of issues related to violence and mental health. Topics include psychopathy and antisocial behavior in youth, sexual aggression, bullying and
violence in schools, medication treatment of aggression, violence and psychosis, and individual and community factors that increase risk for violence. There will also be a panel discussion including speakers, and with audience participation.
This conference will provide mental health practitioners, correctional staff, teachers, law
enforcement personnel, and other professionals whose work involves working with, or developing policies related to, violent individuals with state-of-the-art perspectives about the causes and treatments of various high-profile types of violent behavior.
This educational activity will be of interest to clinicians (psychiatrists, social workers, nurses, psychologists, certified counselors and other mental health providers) and researchers working with
people whose behavior is characterized by violence towards others; to teachers and other school- based personnel who encounter violent behavior among students, to those in the correctional and
criminal justice systems, and to those interested in public policy related to violence reduction.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify the causes of violent behavior in youth and in adults, especially forms of violence related to psychiatric disorders
- Evaluate the manner in which individual and environmental determinants of, and risk factors for, violent behavior, interact to increase the risk for violence
- Evaluate the effectiveness of pharmacological, psychological, and environmental interventions to reduce violent behavior
