Risk Assessment and Management of Sexual Violence (RSVP) with an update on the new SVR20 version 2)

Go Back


Numerous instruments now exist to support the efforts of practitioners to predict the likelihood of sexual violence recidivism. Fewer instruments are available to support efforts to formulate and manage risk, and ultimately prevent sexual violence. This workshop will prepare participants to administer a structured professional judgement (SPJ) instruments designed for use with sexual offenders.

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP), is a more recent and comprehensive tool designed to assist practitioners in case management. Neither of these instruments employ actuarial or statistical methods to support decision-making about risk, but instead offer guidelines for collecting relevant information and making structured decisions. This workshop will review the content and the administration of the RSVP, and provide an overview of the range of risk management strategies for sexual violence.

Sexual Violence Risk (SVR20 V2, NEW), The SVR-20 V2 is a set of Structured Professional Judgment guidelines for assessing and managing risk for sexual violence. It is a simplified, brief version of the RSVP. Since its was first released in 1997, the SVR-20 has been translated into more than a dozen languages and is used in forensic mental health and criminal justice settings around the world. The manual contains all the information needed to administer, code, and interpret the tool.

Case studies will be presented to allow those attending to apply the instruments in their own work with confidence.
