Training Description
The Estimate of Risk of Adolescent Sexual Offense Recidivism (ERASOR) is one of most widely-used risk assessment tools for adolescents who have offended sexually. The ERASOR provides the evaluator with a comprehensive list of risk factors that can structure the professional judgment of risk. The ERASOR can also act as a valuable guide for intervention and supervision efforts. Presented by the co-developer of the ERASOR, this On Demand certified workshop will train you in the use of the ERASOR while earning 7 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the ERASOR will be discussed, item-by-item instructions will be given on how to reliably score the measure and interpret its findings, a review of the peer-reviewed research on the ERASOR will be provided, best practices in data collection will be explained, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply ERASOR reporting conventions. Case studies will be employed to allow you to practice using the tool’s manual and to learn to avoid common administration errors.
