OGB Consulting uses established risk assessment tools to assess a young person’s criminal behaviour, individual risk factors, likelihood of future offending, and risk of harm to themselves and others. Tools used for violence, sexual offending, general offending and fire-setting in young people include the following:
- Juvenile Sex Offender Assessment (J-SOAP-II)
- Structured Assessment of Violence Risk in Youth (SAVRY)
- Children’s Fire-setting Interview (CFI) & Fire-setting Risk Interview (Parent- FRI)
As well as psychometric tests for behavioural difficulties such as anger, trauma, anxiety and empathy. Psychological reports can be provided for solicitors, social work, and the courts. These focus on the identified risk factors with recommended strategies for risk management.
