    Risk assessment, when applied to youth who have committed physical or sexual violence, is the process of evaluating the youth for behaviors and characteristics that would impact the likelihood of violent behavior in the future.  A brief historical overview of the development of risk assessment will be covered with an exploration of the steps of basic risk assessment, risk assessment models including clinical, actuarial, and guided clinical judgment, and risk evaluation as it would apply to youth. Risk assessment and its role in the evaluation and treatment of violent youth offenders will be discussed with an emphasis on the utilization of age-and offense-appropriate tools. With this introduction, risk assessment will be discussed through the exploration of topics including:

    • Neurodevelopment factors to consider when performing risk assessment and risk evaluation in youth
    • Risk assessment tools specific for physical versus sexual violence in youth
    • Protective factors and their importance in mitigation of future risk

    These concepts will be reinforced by case examples of risk assessment utilizing tools discussed utilizing case examples of risk assessment of Incel radicalized youth, risk assessment in the context of autism spectrum disorder, and risk assessment for safety to return to school in the context of a threatened school shooting. References and resource materials will be provided in addition to lecture content.

    After attending this presentation, attendees will:

    • Appreciate the process of risk assessment as it applies to youth who have committed physical or sexual violence.
    • Understand the types of risk assessment models,
    • Be able to evaluate cases for the need for risk assessment and make initial recommendations as to the tool type for that assessment.
