The Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide (SARA) helps criminal justice professionals predict the likelihood of domestic violence. The tool is a quality-control checklist that determines the extent to which a professional has assessed risk factors of crucial predictive importance according to clinical and empirical literature.
With 20 items, the SARA assessment screens for risk factors in individuals suspected of or being treated for spousal or family-related assault. The SARA can help determine the degree to which an individual poses a threat to his/her spouse, children, another family member, or another person involved.
The instrument can be used by members of various boards or tribunals (e.g., parole and review boards, professional ethics committees, etc.), lawyers, victims’ rights advocates, and also prisoners’ rights advocates.
The SARA was normed on 2,309 adult male offenders-1,671 probationers and 638 inmates.
