START:AV training

Places for this training are now full. Please email for more details.

CYCJ will be hosting START:AV training in February 2023 at the University of Strathclyde.

This free training is funded specifically for professionals working in the youth justice field in Scotland who conduct assessments in relation to high-risk behaviours displayed by, or experienced by, children and young people.

The Short Term Assessment of Risk and Treatability: Adolescent Version (START:AV) was developed to guide the individualised assessment of vulnerabilities and strengths that can lead to, and mitigate against, the risk of adverse outcomes occurring, including harm to others and rule violations and harm to the adolescent. The aim of the tool is to guide evidence-based intervention planning to reduce the risk of harm occurring and promote healthy development.

Participant requirements for the training:

  • Participants MUST be able to attend both days of training
  • Participants MUST have access to a START:AV User Guide/Manual for the training
  • Participants MUST be working in the youth justice field in Scotland

The START:AV is designed to be used by a range of professionals such as psychologists, social workers, psychiatrists, nurses, and other professionals in justice and mental health settings. It should only be used by those who have experience of working with adolescents, such as through formal training, continuing education, and/or professional practice.
