Looking to in-source the capacity to perform violence risk assessments by behavioral intervention and threat assessment teams?
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 assist with individuals identified as elevated, severe, or extreme risk by the NABITA Risk Rubric or using similar methodologies.
Is the SIVRA-35 a psychological test that can predict the next school shooter?
No. The SIVRA-35 is an informal, structured set of items to use with individuals who may pose a risk or threat to the community. SIVRA-35 is not designed as a psychological test.

SIVRA-35 training, led by NABITA experts, will cover how to administer the tool based on a range of behaviors, including:
- Direct Communicated Threats
- Observable Behaviors/Language/Factors
- Contextual Environmental Factors
This training will also offer additional detail, case studies, and advice on how the BIT can integrate the SIVRA-35 into its current practice.
Note: Dangerousness and violence, from a student , faculty, or staff member is difficult, if not impossible, to accurately predict. This training topic offers research-based techniques and theories to provide a foundational understanding and improved awareness of the potential risk. The training or tool should not be seen as a guarantee or offer any assurance that violence will be prevented.
The SIVRA-35 should NOT be used as a sole source document to separate or keep a student on campus, but rather as a part of a larger assessment contributing to a case management and intervention plan.
