eHARM Training Certification
Presenters: Dr. Gary Chaimowitz, Dr. Mini Mamak, Katelyn Mullally
Wednesday, April 11, 2018

The electronic Hamilton Anatomy of Risk Management (eHARM) was developed with an aim to enhancing the assessment, monitoring, and management of risk at the clinical interface using analytics. The eHARM is an easy to use electronic tool that allows for innovative data input and data output. From a risk assessment and management perspective, the tool generates automatic individual analytics which allow users to easily track progress and change. From a research and quality improvement perspective, the tool also allows for group analysis and is SPSS compatible. The eHARM is now in use in multiple forensic and general psychiatric settings nationally and internationally.
Attendees will receive training in the use of the eHARM and the Aggressive Incidents Scale (AIS). This presentation will also aim to share learnings regarding the use of analytics in mental healthcare and the ways in which such a tool can enrich clinical practice in this setting.
Introduce the eHARMand provide an overview of the tool
Demonstrate the tool and embedded analytics
Participants will be lead through case discussions and case exercises
Demonstrate the capabilities of the patient aggregator component and initial findings from one year of implementation
Please see our website: www.AIS-HARM.com for additional information about the tools.
SAPROF Training Workshop
$350 + tax

Course Fee includes SAPROF manual, learning materials, refreshments, and lunch.
The Structured Assessment of Protective Factors for violence risk (SAPROF) is an SPJ assessment tool specifically designed for the structured assessment of protective factors for violence risk in adults. The tool has been developed to be used in addition to (primarily) risk- focused risk assessment tools, such as the HCR-20, HCR-20V3 or LS/CMI. The 17 protective factors of the SAPROF are almost all dynamic, in order to inspire focus on strengths and positive development. Including the SAPROF protective factors in the risk assessment process may stimulate positive treatment initiatives, offer additional guidelines for risk management, support release decision-making and provide new opportunities for strengths-based treatment evaluation. Upon completion of this course, attendees will be able to use the SAPROF in practice.
