The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP)

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP) January 2018

Numerous instruments now exist to support the efforts of practitioners to predict the likelihood of sexual violence recidivism. Fewer instruments are available to support efforts to formulate and manage risk, and ultimately prevent sexual violence. This workshop will prepare participants to administer a structured professional judgement (SPJ) instruments designed for use with individuals who are at risk of being sexually harmful to others.

The Risk of Sexual Violence Protocol (RSVP) is a more recent and comprehensive tool designed to assist practitioners in case management. It does not employ actuarial or statistical methods to support decision-making about risk, but instead offers guidelines for collecting relevant information and making structured decisions. This workshop will review the content and the administration of the RSVP, and provide an overview of the range of risk management strategies for sexually harmful behaviour.
