Preliminary screening for general recidivism risk saves valuable time and resources in correctional, legal, and behavioral health settings. The Level of Service Inventory-Revised: Screening Version (LSI-R:SV) aids in this pursuit by offering a fast, friendly, and frugal alternative to administering full risk/needs assessments for all offenders. This workshop will train you in the use of the LSI-R:SV while earning 6 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the LSI-R:SV 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 LSI-R will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply LSI-R:SV reporting conventions. A case study will be employed to allow you to practice using the tool’s coding manual and to learn to avoid common administration errors. Attendees should have access to an LSI-R:SV manual and coding sheet purchasable through the instrument’s publisher, Multi-Health Systems. For details, visit: http://www.mhs.com/
