In R.J. Corsini's Dictionary of Psychology (1989) violence is defined as "the expression of hostility and rage through physical force directed against persons or property." In this website, the term physical force includes verbal and emotional, as well as physical abuse.

All tests discussed in this website contain a Violence Scale, Truthfulness Scale, (to determine client truthfulness) and an Alcohol Scale, as well as a Drug Scale. Other scales (measures) are also included to fill out the clients' (offenders’) violence profile.
