This webinar on SARA/B-SAFER Overview is presented by Dr. Randall Kropp.
This Distance Learning Recorded Webinar focuses on Assessing and Managing Risk for Intimate Partner Violence using the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide (SARA) and the Brief Spousal Assault Form for the Evaluation of Risk (B-SAFER). During this Webinar, Dr. Kropp discusses violence against current or former intimate partners, one of the most common and dangerous forms of violence, and important concepts relevant to conducting violence risk assessment and management in the context of IPV. Dr. Kropp provides a review of the items and administration of the SARA Version 2 and an introduction to Version 3 (to be released in 2015), as well as an overview of the B-SAFER.
SARA – The SARA is a set of comprehensive structured professional judgment (SPJ) guidelines for assessing and managing risk for intimate partner violence (IPV). Research has demonstrated the validity of the Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide (SARA; Kropp & Hart, 2000) and the manual has been translated into at least 10 languages and is being used in at least 15 countries around the world (Kropp & Gibas, 2010).
B-SAFER – The Brief Spousal Assault Form for the Evaluation of Risk (B-SAFER), based on the SARA, is also a set of comprehensive structured professional judgment (SPJ) guidelines for assessing and managing risk for intimate partner violence but was designed for use by police and other justice agencies.
The fee for this training program is $200.
This recorded webinar is appropriate for diverse professionals including (but not limited to) health care, criminal justice, victim services, security, social service, education, and human resources who are interested in learning more about intimate partner violence risk assessment or those who are considering implementing the SARA or B-SAFER into their practice. This webinar is for beginner, intermediate, and advanced level clinicians.
