Using a variety of neurocognitive tests and clinical evaluations, the authors of this study attempt to create validated risk measures for assessing risk for violence in schizophrenic individuals.
Unfortunately, it is well established that individuals with schizophrenia engage in violent criminal acts at a higher rate than the general population. Though only about 1% of the population has schizophrenia, the potential impact of violent behavior is high. As such, there is a need for validated risk measures to help clinicians assess risk for violence in schizophrenic individuals.
