During the webinar, Dr. Guy reviews major developmental concepts relevant to violence risk assessment and management with youth, teaches participants how to rate the risk and protective factors on the SAVRY, and discusses how the measure can be used in practice.

The Structured Assessment of Violence Risk in Youth (SAVRY) is a set of guidelines for comprehensive violence risk assessment and management for adolescents based on the Structured Professional Judgment (SPJ) model. It can be used in correctional, forensic, and general or civil psychiatric settings. The SAVRY is used widely around the world and the manual has official translations in Dutch, Swedish, Finnish, Spanish and Catalan, German and Norwegian. Research conducted to date has supported the SAVRY as a reliable and valid tool for assessing violence risk in adolescents.
