While attending the IN-AJSOP training, I gained new insight into the level of need for this population. This training allowed for me to have a different view of the people that I am serving, and be able to move towards educating others.

MEGA♪ assesses risk level of coarse sexual improprieties, and/or sexually abusive behavior of youth (males and females, ages 4-19 years). This includes identifying youth with low intellectual functioning, a significant assessment factor not found in similar tools. Another unique feature of MEGA♪ is the individualized risk assessment reports, which identify the specific risk factors contributing to the youth’s assessed risk level (Low, Moderate, High, or Very High).

MEGA♪ validation and cross-validation studies are the largest in risk assessment research on youth, with combined samples of over 2200 adjudicated and non-adjudicated youth. Participating research sites included Department of Juvenile Justice of State of Kentucky (administered statewide) San Diego County Probation, and several types of treatment facilities (residential programs, psychiatric hospitals, community agencies, day treatment, and outpatient clinics) in northern and southern California, Arizona, and New Mexico. Also included were international sites in Canada, Scotland, and England.

MEGA♪ demonstrated predictive validity in its cross-validation research, establishing normative data, with specific cut-off scores according to gender and age groups (ages 4-12; 13-15; 16-19 years). Professionals can have confidence in assessment findings; that is, MEGA♪ does not leave risk assessment to “guess-estimate”. MEGA♪ only recently became available to the public. It now has been implemented in California, Arizona (Department of Juvenile Corrections), and internationally (Ireland, United Kingdom, and Israel).

MEGA♪, also an outcome measure, can establish baseline risk level for sexually abusive behavior and identify changes in risk level over time (every 6-months). Organizations providing supervision and monitoring of sexually abusive youth find this feature of MEGA♪ to be particularly beneficial, especially for cases in long-term placement.

The cost for the MEGA♪ 1 Day- Specialized Risk Assessment Training is $300 per individual attendee. This fee includes the MEGA♪ Manual @ $75 and a working lunch.
