Program Description

This webinar on SARA (The Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide) Research Update is presented by Dr. Randall Kropp.

The SARA has become popular worldwide as a method for assessing and managing risk for intimate partner violence (IPV). It has been translated into 10 languages and is used by diverse professionals in numerous countries across six continents.

The third version of the guidelines, the SARA-V3, was published in 2015 by Drs. Randall Kropp and Stephen Hart. This webinar provides a review and synthesis of international research on the SARA and the Brief Spousal Assault Form for the Evaluation of Risk (B-SAFER), an abbreviated instrument derived from the SARA. The implications of this research for IPV risk assessment in law enforcement, victim services, forensic and civil mental health, correctional settings, and workplaces are addressed.

Finally, the webinar describes the key changes and innovations incorporated into the SARA-V3 along with the research and literature supporting these developments.

The fee for this training program is $100 and participants should expect to commit approximately 1.5 CE hours to complete this training program. At the end of the training program, there is a quiz that must be passed with a 70%. Once the course is completed participants will complete a course evaluation and then will be able to print their certificate of completion.
