Dynamic sexual recidivism risk assessments are increasingly required in behavioral health, correctional, and court settings. Recent surveys suggest that among the most widely-researched and commonly-used dynamic risk assessment tools for sex offenders are the STABLE-2007 and the ACUTE-2007. Presented by a certified STABLE-2007 and ACUTE-2007 trainer, this live and interactive workshop will train you in the use of the STABLE-2007 and ACUTE-2007 while earning 8 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the STABLE-2007 and ACUTE-2007 will be discussed, item-by-item instructions will be given on how to reliably score the measures and interpret their findings, and guidance will be provided on how to apply STABLE-2007 and ACUTE-2007 reporting conventions. Case studies will be employed to allow you to practice using the tools and to learn to avoid common administration errors.
At the end of this training you will be able to…
- Describe the administration procedures for the Stable-2007 & Acute-2007
- Practice scoring the Stable-2007 & Acute-2007 using case studies
- Review peer-reviewed research on the Stable-2007 & Acute-2007
- Identify the rationale for developing the Stable-2007 & Acute-2007
- Identify the structural properties of the Stable-2007 & Acute-2007
- Review the reliability and validity of Stable-2007 & Acute-2007 scores
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative live training is the first-of-its-kind.

“I am grateful to our agency and GIFR for making this training accessible and affordable. The knowledge provided is essential for my work. Learning the material in GIFR’s format with interactive options and case scenarios was very effective.”
“Between the quality of Dr. Wilson’s presentation, both in terms of content and style, and GIFR’s high level of customer service, I would rank this as the best Web-based CE program in which I have ever participated.”
“The instructor was HILARIOUS and had decades of clinical experience which really added to the experience. He was well-informed, engaging, easy-to-follow, and responsive to questions which I appreciated. I had never thought about using online training before this, but this was simple and high-quality.”
“The real-world examples and practice using both the Stable-2007 and Acute-2007 brought the instruments to life, and I am now much more comfortable administering them as part of my forensic evaluations. I discovered a number of misconceptions I had about the scoring criteria for the instruments which I am now able to correct thanks to the presenter, who was highly knowledgeable and down-to-earth.”
