Domestic Violence Inventory Pre-Post (DVI Pre-Post): The DVI Pre-Post measures domestic violence offender counseling-treatment effectiveness or outcome. The same test is administered at intake (pretest) and again at program completion (posttest). The pretest serves as a baseline.

Upon treatment completion everybody asks the same question: “Was treatment effective?” The DVI Pre-Post helps answer that question.

The Pre-Post Inventory-Juvenile is recommended when referral sources, treatment staff and other interested parties want to know “if treatment was effective.”
Suicide Risk Assessment (SRA): Suicide Risk Assessment (SRA) a 142-item self-report Suicide Risk Assessment (SRA). Its website www.suicide-risk-assessment.com introduces the SRA which takes 25 minutes to complete. From data (answers) computer entry, it takes 3 minutes to score and print 4-page SRA reports. The SRA was strongly influenced by M. David Rudd's suicide theory and its peer reviewed research. David Lang (2013) emphasized clinicians should use a suicide screening tool with patients manifesting co-existing disorders like anxiety, depression, or substance (alcohol/drug) abuse.
