The Risk Inventory and Strengths Evaluation (RISE) is an all-new rating scale that provides a comprehensive understanding of both high-risk behaviors 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. Cutoff 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
The RISE is easy to administer, score, and interpret—making it easy to present findings to parents and evaluation team members.
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.
