Clinical Skills in the Application of the Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP) and Sexual Violence Risk-20 Guide (SVR-20V2)

Go Back


 Numerous instruments now exist to support the efforts of practitioners to assess the likelihood of sexual violence recidivism.  Fewer instruments are available to guide efforts to formulate and manage risk, and ultimately prevent or limit sexually violent behaviour.  This two-day workshop will prepare participants to administer two sets of guidance adhering to the structured professional judgement approach designed for use with sexual offenders for the purpose of understanding and managing the risk of sexually harmful behaviour.

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP) is a set of comprehensive guidance designed to assist expert practitioners in the enduring case management of men and women who are thought to be at risk of sexually harmful behaviour.  The Sexual Violence Risk-20 Guide Version 2 (SVR-20V2) is a more brief set of guidance for practitioners with a range of experience working with sexual offenders for the purpose of making summary judgements about risk and general recommendations about risk management.  This workshop will focus mainly on the RSVP and summarise the applications of the SVR-20V3, therefore it is best suited for practitioners experienced in working with sexually harmful individuals and familiar with appraising and managing the risks they may pose to those around them.

The evidence-base for the structured professional judgement approach will be presented and the origins of its application to sexual offenders discussed.  Case studies will be used to illustrate the applications of both sets of guidance, from assessment through to risk management via the critical task of risk formulation.
