Subject:RE: risk assessment tools

Chris Baird, Dennis Wagner, Kristen Johnson and others from the Children’s Research Center at the National Council on Crime and Delinquency have written a number of articles on the development, reliability and validity of actuarial risk assessment instruments for Child Protective Services. I am providing references for two of them. Baird, S.C & Wagner, D. (2000). The Relative Validity of Actuarial- and Consensus-Based Risk Assessment Systems. Children and Youth Services Review, 22, 839-871. Baird, S.C , Wagner, D., Healy, T., & Johnson, K. (1999). Risk Assessment in Child Protective Services: Consensus and Actuarial Model Reliability.

Borkosky, Psy.D PA Sent: Friday, September 02, 2011 1:40 PM To: Child Maltreatment Researchers Subject: Re: risk assessment tools Hi, Crystalle, thank you for the link. I have seen several of these SDM-related risk assessment forms. I think I had found them in various SDM publications. Now I am looking for the details of their development. Was the risk assessment creation published in an article anywhere? Are there norms? sensitivity? specificity?
