Domestic Violence Offenders: Risk Assessment-Driven Community-Focused Supervision – San Bernardino


This eight-hour course explores both practical and research-based information on the importance of identifying risk factors and using appropriate risk assessment tools to develop supervision case plans for adult domestic violence offenders that leads to reduced recidivism. Trainees will review and apply how criminal history, substance use, employment, antisocial personality and attitude, and individual factors contribute to a domestic violence offender’s risk level, and how dynamic risk factors can be addressed by applying the Risk-Need-Responsivity principles as a framework. Strategies for effective collaboration with the court, community, batterer’s intervention and other service providers will be addressed. Trainees will increase their risk assessment knowledge and skills for working effectively with domestic violence offenders and their capacity to incorporate strategies to address unique case supervision factors into their practice.
