The Risk Matrix 2000 (RM2000) is one of the most commonly-used risk assessment tools for predicting the likelihood of future sexual and nonsexual violent recidivism in adult male sexual offenders. Information gathered via file review is used to score individuals on three scales: sexual recidivism (RM2000/S), nonsexual violent recidivism (RM2000/V), and combined recidivism (RM2000/C). Meta-analytic research has found all three RM2000 scales to be valid predictors of sexual, nonsexual violent, and general recidivism. Presented by the developer of the RM2000, this On Demand certified workshop will train you in the use of the RM2000 while earning 3.5 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the RM2000 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 RM2000 will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply RM2000 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.
