The SAPROF can be used to assess clients who reside in the community, hospitals, secure forensic settings and prisons. Professionals who might use the SAPROF include: clinicians, evaluators, case managers, probation offices, and others who are involved in dispositional decisions, risk management, conditional release, discharge planning, and allocation of resources concerning violent offenders. Participants will be able to summarize related research findings, demonstrate an understanding of SAPROF items and scoring through practice cases, demonstrate an understanding of SAPROF results through integration in case conceptualizations, and describe how the SAPROF-SO will differ from the original SAPROF.
