Hosted by the Cognitive Centre
The introduction of the Structured Assessment of Protective Factors for violence risk (SAPROF) has been received with enthusiasm in risk assessment practice. The tool has now been translated into 15 different languages and is increasingly being implemented in clinical practice around the globe. Several expansions of the tool are currently in the making, such as for sexual offending, learning disabilities, and intensive inpatient care. A youth version of the tool has also been constructed. The original SAPROF adult version was developed to assess protective factors for violence risk in adults and is intended to be used in addition to (primarily) risk-focused risk assessment tools, such as the HCR-20V3 or LS/CMI. The 17 protective factors of the SAPROF are almost all dynamic, in order to inspire focus on strengths and positive development. Including the SAPROF protective factors in the risk assessment process may stimulate positive treatment initiatives, offer additional guidelines for risk management and provide new opportunities for strengths-based treatment evaluation. This train-the-trainer workshop is intended for those who wish to become a SAPROF trainer. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to train colleagues within their own service in the use of the SAPROF.
Course Fee includes SAPROF manual, learning materials, lunch and refreshments:
