Dozens of assessment tools exist to predict high-risk intimate partner violence. Assessments are used in criminal justice settings, domestic violence advocacy, child protection, and to determine lethality, but do these tools actually work?  If so, how do we use these tools while following the core social work guideline of self-determination?

This workshop will provide an overview of several domestic violence risk assessment tools, discuss the challenges associated with predicting risk, provide examples of how assessment tools are used in model programs, give hands-on practice using domestic violence assessment tools, and explore the ethical use of risk assessment.  

This class meets the licensure requirement for 3 hours of continuing education in ethics.

General Admission: $60**

Class size is limited to 50.
