The prediction of recidivism risk and the identification of criminogenic needs are key to evidence-based practice in correctional, legal, and behavioral health settings. The Self-Appraisal Questionnaire (SAQ) is a unique actuarial risk assessment instrument designed assess recidivism risk using self-report among male offenders. Containing both static and dynamic risk factors, the SAQ takes only 20 minutes to administer and has been found in peer-reviewed research to produce accurate predictions of both violent and non-violent recidivism.
Presented by the instrument’s developer, this workshop will train you in the use of the SAQ while earning 4 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit. The development of the SAQ will be discussed, scale-by-scale instructions will be given on how to reliably score the measure and interpret its findings, and a review of the peer-reviewed research on the SAQ will be provided. Attendees should have access to SAQ manual purchasable through the instrument’s publisher, Multi-Health Systems. For details, visit: http://www.mhs.com/
