The WAVR-21 – Workplace Assessment of Violence Risk – is a 21-item coded instrument for the structured assessment of workplace and campus targeted violence risk.
First published in 2007 by its co-developers, Drs. Stephen White and Reid Meloy, the WAVR-21 reflects the authors’ extensive case and forensic experience and a thorough review of the research and clinical literature. The WAVR is now in its third edition, published in 2016.
The revised V3 Worksheet and Grid coding forms are appropriate for use by both clinical and non-clinical professionals, typically involved in the threat assessment and management endeavor. The manual is written in an accessible style, that any threat assessment and management practitioner may gain a fundamental understanding of violence risk in workplace and campus contexts.
