Manner No. 003 

This manner is based on risk formulation and risk management. Its intended outcomes are advice on the ‘pattern of behaviour’ and the level of restriction and intervention required to minimise that risk.


• Risk Formulation is an individualised model for understanding a person’s offending behaviour, which can directly guide consideration of future risk. It involves the integration of the information gathered about a case, including specific risk factors, protective factors and the outcome of tests (for example personality assessment).

• Risk Management is the process of planning and delivering a range of strategies proportionate to the assessed risk and drawing on a broad risk management activities.
