Event description
The Centre for Youth & Criminal Justice (CYCJ) will be hosting START:AV training in Lochgilphead on 3rd-4th February 2020.

About this Event

This training is funded specifically for qualified youth justice professionals working in Scotland who conduct assessments in relation to high risk behaviours.

The Short Term Assessment of Risk and Treatability: Adolescent Version (START:AV) was developed to provide a robust method of assessing all forms of clinical risk – harm to self, harm to others, absconscion, exploitation, etc. whilst maintaining a focus on the changeable nature of risk. START-AV is a highly practical protocol for regular risk assessments and it is sophisticated in its approach as it requires a rating on both strengths and vulnerabilities.

Participants MUST be able to attend both days of training.

START:AV requires validation in Scotland. Practitioners will therefore be required to share data, completed assessments, and be involved in consultation, with CYCJ and the RMA. Application indicates that you have organisational commitment to use START:AV assessment and support its evaluation.

Training materials will be sent out 2 weeks prior to the training that you will be required to print off and bring with you to the training.

You will also need to provide your own manuals. Most local authorities were provided with a couple of manuals / user guides from the Scottish Government at the October 2018 training. Alternatively these can be purchased in advance from https://protect-international.com/product/short-term-assessment-risk-treatability-adolescent-version-startav-manual/. Please allow sufficient time for delivery as they are posted from abroad.

If you are booking places on behalf of other colleagues then please ensure you use their e-mail address.

Please note that due to this being a free training event there will be NO lunch provided. There will be time provided to purchase your lunch locally or you are welcome to bring in your own.
