The Structured Assessment of Protective Factors (SAPROF) is a structured professional judgement checklist for violence risk designed to be used in combination with other structured risk assessment tools like the HCR-20.

Our Train the Trainer workshop will enable attendees to train others in use of the SAPROF, whether it is their in-house colleagues or third parties through workshops, subject to agreement with the authors of the SAPROF.

Who should attend?

Our SAPROF course is aimed at mental health practitioners who have already taken basic SAPROF training (such as our one-day SAPROF workshop).
