The Juvenile Sex Offender Recidivism Risk Assessment Tool-II (JSORRAT-II) is one of most widely-used risk assessment tools for adolescents who have offended sexually. The JSORRAT-II provides the evaluator with an evidence-based protocol with which to structure the professional judgment of risk. The JSORRAT-II can also act as a valuable guide for intervention and supervision efforts. Presented by the lead developer of the JSORRAT-II, this On Demand certified workshop will train you in the use of the JSORRAT-II while earning 4 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the JSORRAT-II 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 JSORRAT-II will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply JSORRAT-II 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.
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative On Demand training is the first-of-its-kind.
