This chapter explores the utility and potential implementation of a new female version of an assessment tool called the Active Risk Management System (ARMS) along with some of the limitations and challenges academics and practitioners face when attempting to engage with strengths-based approaches. In doing this, an analysis of the areas to be assessed is offered with a special focus on protective factors that have been highly overlooked in the past. Forwarding women to programmes that enhance their strengths and empower them is a very promising strategy that can be used at all levels of prevention (primary, secondary and tertiary) but that can only happen if they are assessed accordingly.
