Features and benefits

  • Each area (risk for dangerousness, sophistication-maturity, and treatment amenability) is measured by a scale composed of 15 items, and each scale contains three clusters.
  • Interview questions are designed to obtain background, clinical, and historical information, as well as a sample of the juvenile’s behavioral and psychological functioning.
  • You can score items by reviewing and synthesizing information from the entire interview as well as from other sources.
  • Each item is rated on a 3-point scale, reflecting the extent to which the individual demonstrates the specific characteristic.
