The FAVT-A can help you screen for violence potential, determine whether or not a verbal threat will lead to a violent act, plan clinical intervention, and monitor progress and outcomes in adolescents.
Get direct information about the content and intensity of an adolescent’s thoughts
- Derived directly from clinical material gathered from violent individuals, FAVT-A items represent thoughts experienced prior to committing violent acts.
- Items are organized into four levels (i.e., Paranoid/Suspicious, Persecuted Misfit, Self-Depreciating/Pseudo-Independent, Overtly Aggressive) and two theoretical subscales (i.e., Instrumental/Proactive Violence, Hostile/Reactive Violence).
- Data on two reference groups (i.e., Incarcerated, Probation) are included.
- Change score tables are provided across four different levels of significance for the four normative groups and for the two reference groups so that you can easily find out if a significant change has occurred over two administrations.
