The second edition of Managing Clinical Risk is a comprehensive guide that provides practical insights and strategies for conducting risk assessments and managing risks in a evidence-based, accountable, and effective manner. Spanning over a dozen chapters, each centered around a brief case study that reflects a diverse range of risk areas, practitioners are offered guidance on various aspects of the process. These include how to effectively read referrals, identify the key information relevant to their evaluations, engage with individuals who may be hesitant to participate in risk assessments, organize the information gathered to develop a comprehensive risk formulation, and communicate opinions and recommendations that have a meaningful impact.

The book offers an evidence-based understanding of risk assessment and management in critical areas such as violence, sexual violence, suicidal and self-harmful behavior, family and relationship violence, organized criminal and group-based violence, and violent extremism. It distinguishes between practices that are tailored for working with individuals and those that are more suitable for engaging with groups and organizations. A central theme throughout the book is the importance of considering the diversity of clients with whom practitioners engage, and providing guidance on how to adapt approaches accordingly.

Furthermore, the book aims to help practitioners develop the skills necessary to formulate risk assessments when multiple areas of concern are present. All the contributors to this updated guide are scholar-practitioners, experienced professionals with a proven track record in writing and teaching about risk assessment and management practice in their respective fields. As such, the book provides realistic representations of the challenges and complexities involved in this work, aiming to equip practitioners with the knowledge and tools they need to prevent harm and promote well-being.

In conclusion, Managing Clinical Risk: Second Edition is a valuable resource for healthcare professionals, social workers, and anyone involved in risk assessment and management. It offers a comprehensive and practical approach to conducting risk assessments, managing risks, and promoting safety and well-being in various contexts. By leveraging the expertise of scholar-practitioners and focusing on evidence-based practices, this book provides a valuable contribution to the field and is an essential tool for practitioners seeking to improve their skills and knowledge in this area.
