Tragedies like those in Aurora and Newtown have associated mental health and violence in the national conversation. Some call for more involuntary treatment. Others argue that a focus on the mental health status of perpetrators further stigmatizes people with mental health diagnoses, most of whom are not violent. As leaders in the field, counselor educators need to be aware of the variety of perspectives on these issues. This presentation will provide an overview through a review of the empirical literature on forced treatment and offer suggestions for best practices.
