Risk Assessment

I am trained in the use of:

  • The Risk of Sexual violence Protocol (RSVP)

  • Spousal Assault Risk Assessment (SARA)

  • Hospital Clinical Risk Assessment scale (HCR-20)

  • Hare Psychopathy Checklist (Revised) (PCL-R)


“But the jury should in an appropriate case be told …. that this is a principle (i.e. that of the reasonable man) and not a rigid rule. It may sometimes have to yield to a more important principle, which is to do justice in the particular case.” (Hoffman LJ in LucThiet Thuan v The Queen [1997] AC 131)
