Specific versus general risk assessment instruments in stalking cases: Comparing the SAM and the VRAG-poster

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



Abstract:

The recent increase in risk assessment instruments, particularly those constructed for specific offences raise the question of whether specific instruments add to general risk assessment instruments. The SAM and the VRAG are compared in a group of 112 convicted stalkers. Results indicate that while total scores on both instruments are correlated final risk ratings are not comparable. Moreover, the VRAG fails to account for risk factors present in the nature of the stalking offence and risk factors related to the victim, both of which are important considerations in risk management. Results advocate for the use of specific risk assessment instruments.
