Assessing and Managing Risk of Intimate Partner Violence

Go Back


Intimate partner violence is one of the most common and severe forms of violence – the physical and psychological impact on its direct and many vicarious victims is profound, multifaceted, and potentially lifelong.  Understanding the origins and purpose of violence, including coercive control, in intimate relationships is an essential clinical skill for a range of practitioners working across a wide variety of support and judicial services.  This one-day training course aims to provide those practitioners with an introduction to the skills they need to apply the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide, or SARA, as their framework.

The SARA was the first set of risk guidance that exemplified the structured professional judgement approach to managing risk.  Many have since followed the lead set by this important publication, not least the HCR-20V3 (2013)  The SARA is now in its third edition – SARAV3.  Published in 2015, it not only captures learning about the structured professional judgement approach in general, it provides state-of-the-art guidelines based on the latest understanding of intimate partner violence that has application in many services and jurisdictions.  The SARAV3 provides a route map for integrating information about a broad range of risk factors associated with intimate partner violence, and a framework for decision-making that is both systematic and practical.  In this one-day workshop participants will learn the process of applying the SARAV3, using case materials to practice the development of risk formulations and risk management plans.
