The SARA is a set of professional guidelines intended to aid decision-making in a wide range of contexts. It presents a framework within which to assess the risk of future violence in men arrested for spousal assault and was developed as part of a victim protection initiative in British Columbia, Canada. Data is collected through semi-structured interview, files and from other assessments (eg, alcohol/drug abuse, personality disorders, etc) and coded under 20 risk factor categories. Although the authors warn against glib interpretations of a single combined risk rating score, normative data from over 2,000 Canadian offenders is provided to assist interpretation of results.
