Risk Assessment Skills for Advocates
When:Tuesday, October 22 from 2:00-3:30 p.m.
Join the Battered Women's Justice Project (BWJP) for Risk Assessment Skills for Advocates
Presenter: Kate Johnson, LICSW, Community Services Coordinator, Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center, Inc.
Description: Advocates understand the importance of risk assessment though some may struggle with how to conduct assessments in a trauma informed way. A four-stage process for conducting risk assessments with victims will be presented. This framework provides a method for assessment that balances information gathering and relationship building with consideration for the victim's history of violence. Advocates will learn concrete strategies for responding to victims at high risk of a lethal or near lethal assault.
