Adjunct Faculty, Brown School

Dozens of assessment tools exist designed to predict high risk domestic violence behavior. Assessments are used in criminal justice settings, domestic violence advocacy, child protection, and to determine lethality. Properly used, assessment can help provide a guidepost to advise interventions and help professionals identify an emergency before it becomes a tragedy.

This workshop will provide an overview of several domestic violence risk assessment tools, discuss the challenges of determining risk in the domestic violence population, provide examples of how assessment tools are implemented in model programs, and give hands-on practice using domestic violence assessment tools.

Class size is limited to 30.
