Description

Background:
The Spousal Assault Risk Assessment Guide, or SARA, is a 20-item paper-and-pencil checklist designed to screen for risk factors in individuals suspected of or being treated for spousal or family-related assault. Items include: past assault and threats of assault, past violation of conditional release, recent relationship problems, recent employment problems, recent substance abuse/dependence, recent suicidal or homicidal ideation/intent, personality disorder with anger and/or impulsivity, past violation of “no contact” orders, extreme minimization or denial of spousal assault history, and attitudes that support or condone spousal assault.
