Social Policy Implications of the Inability to Predict Violence
Monahan, John; Cummings, Lesley
Journal of Social Issues, 31, 2, 153-164, Spr 75
This review of the empirical literature reveals that violence is vastly over predicted, regardless of who is doing the predicting or how the predictions are made-yet much current social policy in the areas of mental health and criminal justice assumes that psychologists and psychiatrists can accurately predict who will be physically violent.
