Prevention of violence bookStaff from CNWL and West London NHS Trust have contributed to the second edition of a book for healthcare professionals on 'The Prevention and Management of Violence'. The full list of contributors is online here

This edition provides a comprehensive overview of, and best practice
evidence-based guidance on, the prevention and management of aggression
and violence by patients with mental disorder across a variety of different
settings and specialist patient groups. General aspects of violence
management are covered, alongside both pharmacological and psychological interventions.

In this second edition, first edition chapters have been fully revised and greatly expanded with new chapters on working with violence in children, criminal and youth justice liaison and diversion systems, forensic psychiatry and adult inpatient secure settings, the relationship between violence and mental health inequality in the Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities, service user involvement in training, and engagement with patients and carers. It will be of use to a wide range of mental health professionals working in community, inpatient and forensic (including prison) settings, as well as clinicians dealing
with potentially violent incidents day-to-day.
