2000), the ERASOR (Worling & Curwen, 2001), the DISC-IV, the SASSI-A2 (Miller, 1990, 1997), and the FAD (Epstein et al.
Following this brief orientation and discussion, four specific assessment instruments were discussed: the ERASOR, the DISC-IV, the SASSI-A2, and the FAD.
There have been a number of risk assessment tools developed specifically to address the risk of sexual recidivism for adolescents, such as the ERASOR
(Worling & Curwen, 2001), the Juvenile Sex Offender Assessment Protocol (J-SOAP II; Prentky & Righthand, 2003), the Juvenile Risk Assessment Tool (J-RAT; Rich, 2007), and the Juvenile Sexual Offense Recidivism Risk Assessment Tool-II (JSORRAT-II; Epperson, Ralston, Fowers, DeWitt, & Gore, 2006).
The table below is a summary of risk items from the J-SOAPII and the ERASOR 2.
For the purposes of illustrating the general process of applying FAP to target dynamic risk needs, the following section provides a brief summary of the dynamic risk factors outlined in the ERASOR 2.
These non-sexual, "antisocial" risk needs include emotions, attitudes, and behaviors that facilitate a generally "delinquent" or "non-prosocial" life-style, including the following: General self-regulation deficits: (Problems managing your feelings and behaviors) J-SOAP-II Pervasive anger, Management of anger ERASOR 2.
