Sexual recidivism risk assessments are increasingly required in correctional, mental health, and court settings in the United States. This training will focus on the structured assessment and subsequent management of sex offender risk with a strong emphasis on the underpinnings of current practice recommendations and on reviewing the latest research findings concerning the accuracy of commonly used risk assessment tools. Which instruments are used, by whom, where, and for what purposes will be discussed, as will ratings of perceived usefulness in practice from the largest global survey ever conducted on this topic. Attendees can also expect to learn about current uncertainties being discussed in this quickly evolving field. The lecture is aimed towards professionals working in correctional (jails, prisons, parole boards, probation officers) and mental health (psychologists, psychiatrists, and social workers) settings as well as litigators and judges. The goal of the training workshop is to teach attendees how to integrate risk assessment research into evidence-based practice and will highlight innovative new clinical strategies and services developed over the past year that may aid in this endeavor.
