Reliability and Validity of the Short-Term Assessment of Risk and Treatability in Predicting Inpatient Aggression

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The Short-Term Assessment of Risk and Treatability (START) is a relatively new structured professional judgment guide for the assessment and management of short-term risks to self and others through the differential coding of 20 dynamic strengths and vulnerabilities. In this presentation, we report on findings of a study examining assessments completed for 150 male forensic psychiatric inpatients. Outcome data was collected for a one-year period. Results support the reliability and validity of START in predicting inpatient aggression. Across domains, structured clinical judgments outperformed scale scores. START demonstrated incremental validity in predicting verbal and physical aggression over the HCR-20 historical factors.
