Abstract: 

This article briefly surveys the use of lethality assessments, a type of IPV risk assessment that is intended to predict intimate partner homicide. Developed by co-author Jacqueline Campbell, the Danger Assessment (http://www.dangerassessment.org) is unique in that it is the only IPV risk assessment that is intended to predict lethality and gathers data from only the victim-survivor of violence. The DA is included with this article.
