Training Workshops 2018
Violence Risk Assessments constitutes a core task for practitioners working with offenders. It is essential that practitioners adhere to best practice in this complex and challenging task. Our aim is to provide state-of-the art training in a range of violence risk assessment tools. As well as being experienced trainers, our course leaders are all scientist-practitioners who are familiar with the application of risk assessment to real life settings.
The training is suitable for a multi-disciplinary audience and there are courses for all stages of professional development – from introductory to advanced.
For more information on our scheduled training workshops for 2018 please see below.
This brand new workshop combines training in the HCR-20 version 3 and the Risk for Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP). This is because both sets of guidelines support efforts to formulate and manage risk of harmful behaviour using the structured professional judgement (SPJ) approach. The SPJ approach ‘walks’ practitioners through their understanding of the risks posed by clients in their care and on to a comprehensive risk management plan incorporating essential elements of treatment recommendations, supervision strategies, monitoring proposals and victim safety plans, all tailored to the specific needs of individual clients. This two-day course will commence with a thorough review of SPJ – with particular emphasis on risk formulation – followed by the specifics of violence risk assessment, formulation and management using the 3rd version of the HCR-20 guidelines. The workshop will then progress to a review of the RSVP and its applications to understanding risk of sexually harmful behaviour. Case studies will be used to illustrate the use of both sets of guidance.
This workshop will be suitable for practitioners working with clients who are at risk of being harmful in diverse ways. Practitioners with all levels of experience will be welcome.
