Program Description

This webinar on RSVP-SVR Overview is presented by Dr. Randall Kropp.

This webinar focuses on the Assessment of Risk for Sexual Violence using the Risk for Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP) and the Sexual Violence Risk-20 (SVR-20). During the webinar, Dr. Kropp teaches participants how to rate the risk factors on the SVR-20 and provide an introduction to Version 2 of the SVR-20 (to be released in 2018). In addition, the case formulation component of the RSVP is discussed and information on how these measures can be used in practice is provided.

SVR-20 – The Sexual Violence Risk-20 (SVR-20; Boer, Hart, Kropp, & Webster, 1997) is a set of structured professional judgment guidelines for assessing and managing risk for sexual violence. The SVR-20 is used widely and well validated.

The RSVP incorporates the latest advances in the SPJ approach to risk assessment, including methods for violence risk formulation, scenario planning, and case management planning.

The fee for this training program is $200.
