Patient Profile Study
The robust database gathered in the Center's Patient Profile Study
provides opportunities to examine many critical practice issues.
In this study, agency clinicians completed comprehensive instruments describing
a random sample of 876 adults, children and youth seen as outpatients by
the Madeleine Borg Community Services of JBFCS. Among the important
questions examined in the study were the extent, and predictors of, aggression
and violence among the patient population. The study also identified
risk and protective factors associated with aggression and violence.
Important intergenerational patterns were discovered.
