Welcome to the Women's Risk Needs Assessment Research Professor Emily Salisbury's lab at the Utah Criminal Justice Center (UCJC) College of Social Work University of Utah.
The WRNA was originally created through a cooperative agreement between the National Institute of Corrections and the University of Cincinnati through research conducted by Patricia Van Voorhis, Emily Salisbury, Emily Wright, and Ashley Bauman. The instrument is now managed by Dr. Emily Salisbury at Utah Criminal Justice Center (UCJC), College of Social Work University of Utah. For more information about the WRNA, please contact Emily Salisbury at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The WRNA is a public-domain instrument. However, there are conditions of use, a license agreement, and training costs associated with its implemenation. A license/user agreement issued by the University of Utah must be signed by any interested agency before WRNA training can occur.
The Utah Criminal Justice Center offers online, interactive WRNA end-user training with self-paced and live learning sessions.
