Risk Identification and Safety Planning
Risk identification helps to recognize and address the risk of future violence, prioritize cases needing increased levels of support and intervention, inform safety plans, and assist in perpetrator management. Risk identification tools serve an important purpose in developing an appropriate safety plan and responding to threats for survivors of relationship violence. This two-hour webinar, launched in April 2019, introduces tools and practices for identifying evidence-based risk factors and circumstances that make survivors of relationship violence more at risk of serious or potentially lethal violence. It also touches on the principles of ethical and legal information sharing, documentation practices for high-risk cases, and basic safety planning and risk management.
