Objective of the Study: To evaluate the possibility of using SOROP, a tool for the structured assessment of the risk of dangerous behavior, to evaluate the probability of danger to society from people with mental disorders who may deemed sane.

Study Design: This was an observational descriptive study.

Materials and Methods: The SOROP tool was used to examine 100 patients, men and women, aged 17 to 59 (mean age, 28.98 ± 10.8). The patients were divided into two groups: Group 1 (n = 50) consisted of people with non-severe mental disorders who, based on their degree of behavioral dysregulation at the moment of committing a crime, were deemed by experts to have limited sanity; and Group 2 was made up of law-abiding patients who were receiving psychiatric counselling and treatment (n = 50).

Study Results: The internal consistency (reliability) of the SOROP tool was 0.757 and 0.582 for Groups 1 and 2, respectively (Cronbach’s alpha) and split-half reliability was 0.708 and 0.573 (Spearman–Brown coefficient). The study revealed statistically significant differences between the groups with respect to four out of seven clinical signs, six out of nine parameters related to the patients’ personal history, and all parameters defining their social adaptation, with the exception of lifelong employment stability.

Conclusion: SOROP has an acceptable degree of reliability and may be used, together with clinical examination, as an effective tool to assess the likelihood of socially dangerous behavior in people with mental disorders who may be deemed sane.
