The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of the PCL:SV for predicting in-prison violence in Switzerland. Method: PCL:SV scores were assessed from a sample of 114 prisoners sentenced to at least 10 months in prison for sexual or violent offenses. Results: Significant effect sizes for verbal aggressive behavior were found for sexual offenders. No significant results were found in a sample of violent offenders. No significant results were found for physical violence in any subgroup. Discussion: The results suggest only a limited degree of accuracy for the PCL:SV in predicting intramural aggressive behavior for the sample used in this study.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2017-05-17T13:17:11Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Endrass, Jérôme</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Urbaniok, Frank</dc:creator> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Frischknecht, Andreas</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Frischknecht, Andreas</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2017-05-17T13:17:11Z</dc:date> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Noll, Thomas</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Noll, Thomas</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Rossegger, Astrid</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
