Research has revealed that there are patterns to offending that can be aggregated into categories or typologies. Despite the large amount of research on typologies of offending, there is a lack of research exploring general violent offending typologies, and how these can help predict recidivism. In order to address this gap in the literature, we explore what typologies of violent behavior emerge from a large sample of violent offenders, and how these help predict recidivism. We conclude by discussing the implications of these findings for future criminological research and practice.
