Online Training Description:
This workshop will focus on the practical application of a widely accepted theory of criminal conduct known as the Risk-Need-Responsivity (RNR) model in guiding offender management and rehabilitation. The RNR principles are well-supported by empirical research and endorsed by many correctional organizations across North America and other parts of the world. After summarizing the history of RNR and the science behind it, this presentation will focus on translating RNR principles into practice; describe what that looks like; and examine the potential challenges of implementation. The goal is to offer practical tools to effectively implement these principles in both clinical practice and supervision with adult individuals convicted of sex offences.
Attendees will be able to:
1) Explain the Principles for Effective Correctional Rehabilitation (RNR model)
2) Describe the empirical support for the RNR model
3) Explain how to apply the risk principle in terms of prediction and matching
4) Recognize what are and what are not criminogenic needs
5) Identify and address specific responsivity issues
6) Recognize implementation issues that may arise
