The Structured Assessment of Protective Factors against Sexual Offending (SAPROF-SO) is a new assessment tool designed to capture protective factors for individuals with a history of sexual offenses and aligns with a strengths-based approach to treatment. The SAPROF-SO consists of 14 items across three subscales: Resilience, Adaptive Sexuality, and Prosocial Connection & Reward. The optional fourth subscale, Professional Risk Management, consists of six items. The SAPROF-SO demonstrates good reliability and predictive validity in two different incarcerated samples, and incremental validity to the Static-99R (Nolan, 2021; Willis et al., 2020). In addition, it may be particularly useful for establishing therapeutic alliances with clients who are ambivalent about treatment, when making risk management decisions, and release planning for individuals with special needs (Kelley et al., 2022). This training will provide attendees with an overview of the development and research of the tool as well as specific training on scoring and interpretation.
