The HCR-20 is a 20-item checklist to assess the risk for future violent behavior in criminal and psychiatric populations. Items were chosen based on a comprehensive review of the literature and input from experienced forensic clinicians. The HCR-20 includes variables which capture relevant past, present, and future considerations and should be regarded as an important first step in the risk assessment process. The manual provides information about how and when to conduct violence risk assessments, research on which the basic risk factors are based, and key questions to address when making judgments about risk.
