Improve your case management of adults convicted of sexual crimes by implementing the principles of risk, need, and responsivity (RNR) and trauma-informed care (TIC).
Jurisdictions in many countries have implemented supervision strategies that align with the principles of effective correctional rehabilitation. However, due to public scrutiny, it is not always clear how to effectively apply RNR to supervision decisions or how to incorporate RNR and TIC into practices that are primarily aimed at reducing the risk of re-offense. This online training addresses how to effectively integrate RNR, TIC, and risk reduction practices. The training includes case examples that will help attendees apply the concepts learned in their everyday practice.
During this training, Katherine Gotch, LPC, CCSOT, ATSA-F and Valerie Gonsalves, PhD cover topics such as:
- Current trends in the field including, differentiating between evidenced-based and evidence-informed approaches.
- Trauma-informed care (TIC).
- RNR relevant assessment tools for a variety of outcomes, and RNR-based supervision strategies for probation case-management decisions.
- Recent advances in standardized risk communication for assessments, documentation, and case-management decisions.
- Using actuarially-based risk assessment adjustments based on time free in the community.
As a result of this training, participants will be better able to:
1) List the primary components of the RNR model and how RNR can assist with maximizing supervision practices and client success.
2) Define trauma-informed care (TIC) and identify why it is important for correctional populations.
4) Design individualized case plans based upon each client’s identified risk/need factors.
5) Make actuarially-based risk assessment adjustments based on time free in the community.
