New Article: Tony Ward on dynamic risk factors and integrative pluralism

Ian V. McPhail

Tony Ward has recently published two interesting conceptual articles in the journals Psychology, Crime & Law and the Journal of Sexual Aggression.  You can freely download the full text here and here.

In the coming days, I will be posting some commentary on the article by Tony Ward, as I think he raises some interesting ideas but misses out on some potentially fruitful avenues of conceptualizing dynamic risk factors as constructs involved in sexual offending.  My commentary will explore some of the concepts raised by Dr. Ward, critique their perceived value, and offer some alternative ways forward in this very important non-empirical work within forensic psychological science.  Stay tuned!
