Danger Assessment Training

About the Event


For more than 30 years, the Danger Assessment (DA) has been used by domestic violence advocates, healthcare professionals, and criminal justice systems to help abused women see for themselves how much danger they are in. Our mission is to translate research findings into evidence-based practices that support victim-survivor decisions, encourage engagement with DV advocacy, and prevent intimate partner homicide.

The Danger Assessment (DA) is the only risk assessment specifically designed to predict fatal or life-threatening intimate partner violence. It has been rigorously validated in two major, multi-site research studies and six smaller studies.

The DA aids in forming an accurate understanding of the risk of being killed which can help agencies work with victims to coordinate medical, legal, and advocacy services across the domestic violence response system.
