K-12 Structured Interview for Violence Risk Assessment (SIVRA-35)

Wednesday-Thursday, May 15-16, 2024 | 10am-5pm ET

The Structured Interview for Violence Risk Assessment (SIVRA-35) is a 35-item inventory that is used to assist behavioral intervention team members and clinical staff in conducting a more thorough and research-based violence risk assessment. The SIVRA-35 is designed to assess the risk and protective factors related to an individual’s willingness to engage in violence.

This course will provide an in-depth teaching of how to conduct an effective interview and gather information to score an individual using the SIVRA-35. This will include strategies for increasing likelihood of truthfulness, a discussion on how to phrase questions to probe for specific risk and protective factors, and the opportunity to watch demonstration videos and practice scoring them.

After completing this training, participants will be able to…

  • Administer the SIVRA-35 tool in an interview through narrative, structured questions with individuals exhibiting a range of concerning behaviors
  • Conduct a more standardized, research-based violence risk assessment with individuals determined to be at an increased risk
  • Use a quantitative, numeric scoring key to assist in decision-making
