(Watch recording, take quiz, complete evaluation, and download CE certificate)
Participants in the program will be supported to:
- Identify behavioral risk indicators exhibited by children aged 6 to 11 years
- Describe the role of Structured Professional Judgment tools in assessing risk for violence
- Use the Early Assessment Risk List, version 3 to inform violence risk categorization
This is a recorded virtual presentation that took place over two days in November, 2022. The training is designed to prepare professionals and paraprofessionals to use the Early Assessment Risk List-V3 (EARL-V3) to aid in assessing risk for violence in children aged 6 to 11 years. The EARL-V3 takes the place of the EARL-20B and Earl-21G. Now one manual, the EARL-V3 is the go-to instrument for identifying familial and child-specific risk factors and barriers to treatment for children of concern. The training breaks down each of the risk factors, instructs as to proper coding of protocols, provides validity and reliability data, and provides an in-depth examination of sample cases in order to support case conceptualization and management.
6.5 continuing education units are available for this course.

Leena Augimeri, PhD is Director of SNAP ® Scientific, Program Development, Strategic partnerships at Child Development Institute (CDI), Toronto, Canada and SNAP co-founder and Adjunct Professor, University of Toronto. Her expertise focuses on measurement-based care and the development of a comprehensive children’s mental health and crime prevention models designed for children engaged in disruptive behavior and/or in conflict with the law. This includes referral mechanisms for timely access, risk/need assessment (using the EARL-V3) and evidence-based SNAP models.
SNAP (Stop Now And Plan) is a trauma-informed cognitive behavioral model that has three focused program models (SNAP Clinical for middle years children and their families, SNAP Universal – SNAP for Schools, and SNAP Youth Justice). The SNAP strategy teaches children/youth how to stop and think before they act and make better choices ‘in the moment’ by increasing emotion regulation, self-control and problem-solving. Dr. Augimeri has published extensively and is the first author of the EARL (Early Assessment Risk List). She has received numerous awards, including National Recipient of the CAMH Difference Makers of 150 Leading Canadians for Mental Health, Child Welfare League of Canada’s Outstanding Achievement Research/Evaluation Award, Prime Minister’s Regional Social Innovation Award and Elizabeth Manson Award for exemplary contributions to the promotion of children’s mental health). In addition, Dr. Augimeri just completed a very successful large-scale national 5-year implementation project that brought SNAP to over 160 communities in Canada using a unique framework in children’s mental health and crime prevention – venture philanthropy.
