1. Introduction to evidence-based risk assessment

A free one-day workshop on the use of instruments to predict violent and sexual offences. Due to sponsorship by the Welsh Assembly Government we are delighted to be able to offer this workshop free of charge to all those working within institutions in Wales. However, places are limited. The workshop will cover:

  • §  Risk assessment policy and the Welsh Assembly Government

  • §  Types of risk assessment (clinical judgment, structured clinical, actuarial)

  • §  Advantages and disadvantages of each type of assessment

  • §  Guidance for the interpretation of scores and their use in risk management.

  • §  Open discussion about what each organisation is doing at the moment re risk assessment and risk management, their problems of implementation and solutions developed.

Further information and discussion of training needs can be sought from
