Begutachtung der Kriminalprognose. Spielt die Psychopathologie noch eine Rolle?


Habermeyer, E; Gairing, S; Lau, S (2010). Begutachtung der Kriminalprognose. Spielt die Psychopathologie noch eine Rolle? Forensische Psychiatrie, Psychologie, Kriminologie, 4(4):258-263.

Abstract

A variety of standardized instruments allows risk assessment based upon empirical data. This paper calls attention to the pitfalls immanent to the application of popular prognostic instruments (Violence Risk Appraisal Guide, Static-99, Historical Clinical Risk Management-20, Psychopathy Checklist-Revised). Psychopathological assessment, however, has not been superseded by standardized instruments but serves as a valuable addition in terms of an integrative approach.
