The Danger Assessment (Jacquelyn Campbell, 2001) This tool, which requires membership and training, for assessment of risk of lethality in domestic violence situations was developed with consultation and content validity support from battered women, shelter workers, law enforcement officials, and other clinical experts on battering. The first portion of the measure assesses severity and frequency of battering by inviting women to mark on a calendar the approximate days when abusive incidents occurred, and rank the severity of the incident. The calendar portion is intended to raise the consciousness of the woman and reduce denial and minimisation of the abuse. The second portion of the measure invites the woman to complete the Danger Assessment tool which includes a range of indicators shown in formal research to increase the risk of lethality in domestic violence situations. Available in English.
