David Orr

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

“Past violence is the best predictor of future violence” – How many times have you encountered or indeed used this statement in your own practice? While often stated as something of a truism, it is in reality a relatively simplistic assumption whether related to violence specifically or offending behaviour more generally. How can it be countered?
