Dr Caroline Logan, Greater Manchester West MentalHealth NHS Foundation Trust and University of Manchester, UK

‘Risk formulation is the key to effective risk management;to be effective risk formulation must be individualised. Offenceparalleling behaviour is an idea that can help us to get to theheart of understanding the risks posed by an individual. As thisbook makes clear it is an idea whose time has come. A particularstrength of this volume is the breadth of the theoretical models onwhich it draws; it provides the practitioner with a theoreticallyinformed ─ yet fundamentally practical ─ approach tothe problem of risk formulation. I thoroughly recommend this volumeto all those who have the task of managing challengingindividuals.’
