Product Details


The Risk Inventory and Strengths Evaluation (RISE) is an all-new rating scale that provides a comprehensive understanding of both high-risk behaviours and psychological strengths across home, school, and community settings.

The psychological strengths represent important components of resilience—the quality that enables young people to cope effectively with the stressors and challenges of daily life. Cut-off scores identify high-risk status, prompting clinicians to focus on critical items where safety may be a concern. The RISE Index score compares the individual's strengths and risk factors, which helps develop a well-informed intervention plan.

Areas Covered by the RISE:
  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Self-harm
  • Bullying and aggression
  • Sexual risk
  • Suicidal behaviour
  • Eating and sleeping problems
  • Delinquency
  • Support from family
  • Communication skills
  • Self confidence
  • Support from friends\
  • Empathy
  • Interpersonal skills
  • Emotional balance

The RISE is easy to administer, score, and interpret—making it simple to present findings to parents and evaluation team members.

Components include a manual and the Parent- Teacher- and Self-report forms. With only 66 questions on the Parent and Self forms and only 36 on the Teacher form, RISE is one of the most efficient assessments for both clinicians and respondents to use.

  • Validated on a variety of clinical samples, including kids who are receiving interventions for high-risk behaviours such as gang involvement, suicidal and self-harming behaviours, and substance abuse
  • Includes response validity scales to check for inconsistent responding or an overly positive or negative presentation
