Description of Event:
Participants in this training will learn about the development, scoring, and interpretation of the VRAG-R. We will discuss the applicability of the VRAG-R for assessment of future risk for violent recidivism in men with a history of non-violent and violent (including sexually violent) offending. Additionally, we will discuss risk communication strategies to be utilized with retaining agencies and triers of fact. Participants will also learn prorating techniques and adjustment of risk estimates based upon time at liberty in the community. Recent cross-validation and calibration studies predominantly conducted in Europe and Canada with independent samples of adult male and older juvenile offenders will also be discussed. This is a didactic training in which participants will have the opportunity to complete 3 to 4 cases in the course of the 8-hour training as well as the opportunity for post-training certification.
Individuals are most likely to benefit from this training if they have some knowledge of individuals who commit violent and sexual offences. The training also assumes basic familiarity with the criminal justice system and related terms.
