(RISE Assessment) Risk Inventory and Strengths Evaluation

The 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

  • Drug and alcohol use
  • Self-harm
  • Bullying and aggression
  • Sexual risk
  • Suicidal behavior
  • 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 easy to present findings to parents and evaluation team members.

The components include print versions of 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.

The RISE Print Kit includes Print Manual; 25 Uses of the Parent AutoScore Forms in English; 25 Uses of the Teacher AutoScore Forms in English; 25 Uses of the Self-Report AutoScore Forms in English
