Though the Danger Assessment can be taken independently, we recommend taking the assessment with someone you trust, like an advocate. The assessment asks questions about violence, threats, and coercion, so it can be triggering for many. An advocate can support you emotionally and walk you through each of the questions.
You can search for direct service providers like advocates here.
The Danger Assessment is an instrument that helps to determine the level of danger a woman has of being killed by her intimate partner. The tool was originally developed by Dr. Jacquelyn Campbell (1986) with consultation and content validity support from battered women, shelter workers, law enforcement officials, and other clinical experts.
University of Arizona developed the Arizona intimate Partner Risk Assessment Instrument System (APRAIS).
The APRAIS tool predicts near lethal violence and is used at the scene of domestic violence incidents to place survivors in contact with domestic violence advocates. The Arizona Supreme Court recently ruled that a risk assessment and intervention developed and tested by Dr. Messing is recommended for use at the scene of domestic violence incidents throughout Arizona.
