This report outlines the findings from a small-scale pilot study of the sexually harmful behaviour matrix in Forth Valley in 2013. The matrix itself is included as an appendix to the main report, and practitioners are free to use the matrix as a reference tool in their own practice. However, it must be stated that the evidence around the use of the matrix is, as yet, inconclusive and the tool should therefore not replace the appropriate risk assessment and risk management tools and procedures that are in place in your organisation.
