SAPROF - Adult: Structured Assessment of Protective Factors for Violence Risk

Book Now

Date: 7th February 2018

Course Summary:

Whilst there has been much focus on violence risk assessment over the last few decades, the notion of protective factors has not developed clearly until more recent years. Protective factors are individual-case strengths.  They can act as buffers against risk factors, and predict desistance. The focus on empirically driven protective factors when assessing violence risk can assist in the view that treatment can have benefit, that a client is able to identify their strengths, instil hope, encouraging the notion of positive growth, develop insight and allow recovery.  It is expected that violence risk assessments should be accompanied with a protective risk assessment tool, such as the SAPROF. 

This workshop will deliver training on the use of the SAPROF (de Vries Robbe, Geers, Stapel, Hilterman and de Vogel, 2015) (www.saprof.com). This is a risk assessment tool specifically developed for the assessment of protective factors for adults with a history of aggression.  

This workshop will cover:

A brief introduction to risk assessment and evolution of risk versus protective factors;
How protective factors are considered and what they comprise;
Components of the SAPROF;
Application of the SAPROF to case studies.

Trainers: Professor Jane L Ireland will deliver this event. Professor Ireland is a Chartered Psychologist, Forensic Psychologist. Professor Ireland specialises in the understanding, assessment and treatment of aggression, having widely published on this topic.

Course materials: All attendees will be provided with a CPD certificate indicating attendance. Sufficient materials will be provided to allow participants to score clinical cases using the SAPROF. SAPROF manuals can be purchased separately on request, if requested by the 10th January 2018. All necessary materials will, however, be provided to allow completion of the event.

Venue: CCATS, Westbourne House, 3 Lockwood Avenue, Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, FY6 7AB.

There are therefore no restrictions on the professions that can attend. The most common attendees are psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, care workers, community and psychiatric nurses, police officers, therapists, prison officers and probation officers.
