Abstract

The authors studied 62 emergency room patients with violent ideation or action to assess the feasibility of predicting assaultive behavior. Although the likelihood of future violent acts could not be predicted accurately, they discovered that a significant majority of violent patients were potentially treatable within the setting of emergency psychiatry practice.
