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 two-day course will provide an in-depth teaching on 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.
