Structured Assessment of Protective Factors for violence risk

A workshop in the use of the SAPROF is not mandatory for those familiar with the use of Structured Professional Judgment tools (like the HCR-20 or the HCR-20V3). However, it is recommended to attend a SAPROF workshop to familiarize yourself with the tool.


Workshops in the SAPROF are offered by several trainers in different countries, for a list of the primary contacts in your area and for an overview of upcoming open workshop events see the menu on the left.


If you would like to become a SAPROF trainer, please contact for more information on the train-the-trainer program.
