Australian and New Zealand Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abuse

Structured Assessment of Protective Factors for violence risk in adults

Presented by: ANZATSA

The Structured Assessment of Protective Factors for violence risk (SAPROF, 2009) was specifically designed for the structured assessment of protective factors for violence risk in adults. It has been developed for use in conjunction with violence risk-focused risk assessment tools, such as the HCR-20V3. The protective factors incorporated within the SAPROF are predominantly dynamic, in order to inspire focus on strengths within treatment planning and provide opportunities for strengths-based treatment evaluation.

Participants will be able to use the SAPROF in clinical practice or research after attending this workshop.

Professor Michael Daffern is a clinical and forensic psychologist who has worked in prisons and in general and forensic mental health services in Australia and the United Kingdom since 1992. He is currently Professor of Clinical Forensic Psychology with the Centre for Forensic Behavioural Science at Swinburne University of Technology. Michael is convener of the Doctor of Psychology (Clinical and Forensic) training programme and the Graduate Diploma of Forensic Psychology. Professor Daffern’s research interests focus on aggression and violent behaviour, and the assessment and treatment of offenders. He is Associate Editor of the International Journal of Forensic Mental Health and Editorial Board member of The Journal of Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology.
