Duty to Warn

The application of New Jersey’s Duty to Warn law can present challenges in practice. The NJPA Council on Education prepared these brief video clips moderated by Council member Tony Juneja, MD. Dr. Juneja facilitated a discussion with NJPA member Rusty Reeves, MD, Rutgers University, Forensic Psychiatry Training Director and Director of Psychiatry, University Correctional Health Care. The videos offer insights into violence risk assessment and the New Jersey Duty to Warn.
