Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide: Assessment of the likelihood of domestic violence

General Material
Published Date
January, 1999

The Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide (SARA) can help determine the degree to which an individual poses a domestic violence threat to his/her partner, children, another family member, or another person involved. The tool is a quality-control checklist that both determines the extent to which the assessor has considered the risk factors of crucial predictive importance, and yields T-scores and percentiles that are used to classify individuals into High or Moderate/low risk categories.
