What works to reduce recidivism? Targeting of delinquency risk factors Using types of rehabilitation that match client needs and learning styles Programs using a cognitive-behavioral orientation Programs incorporating life skills Community-based as opposed to institutional programs Reinforcement and modeling Cognitive-behavioral techniques: Thinking Process and Skills Educational Strategies: Learn new ways to behave Family Based Therapies: e.g., MST, FFT, now FIT
  4. 4. What usually happens to youth?Youth gets in troubleSent to treatment Placed CYCLE inCONTINUES facility with Returns negative No changes at home home peers
  5. 5. Principles of Effective Treatment Treatment must directly address dynamic characteristics that are directly associated with criminal behavior. Programs must be delivered as designed and intended. Programs must target offenders who are likely to recidivate. Treatment must be adapted to fit the style and ability of the offender.
  6. 6. Clinical Assumptions:Motivating and EngagingYouth and families cannot fail intreatment. Youth and their families are doingthe best that they can – and theyneed to do better.
  7. 7. Clinical Assumptions:Motivating and Engaging, Cont’d.Youth and families are not expected to enterthe rehabilitation system motivated andready to receive treatment from staff.It is staff’s responsibility to help youth andfamilies become and remain motivated forchange.
  8. 8. Transition PlanningThe FIT Model Family Integrated Transitions
  9. 9. FIT is predicated upon the notionthat treatment is most effective if all of the factors that sustain aproblem behavior are addressed in an integrated manner
  10. 10. Transition service planning for juvenile offenders• Integrated transition services, including mental health and substance abuse treatment, financial assistance, and school placement, are rare• Transition planning, post-release mental health services, receipt of financial assistance are associated with lower rate of re-offending at 6 month follow-up (Trupin, Turner, Stewart, & Wood, 2004)
  11. 11. Successful Transition• Prepare youth for increased responsibility and freedom in the community• Facilitate youth-community involvement• Work with community support systems, like school and family, on qualities needed for constructive interaction with youth.• Monitor and test the youth and support systems on their ability to deal with each other productively.
  12. 12. Beginnings of FIT: A recognized need for transition services• Within 3 years of release from Washington’s Juvenile Rehabilitation Administration, 68-78% of youth were convicted of new felonies or misdemeanors• 2000: Washington State Legislature initiated pilot rehabilitation program for youth with co- occurring disorders who are transitioning back to the community from JRA• Directed that independent evaluation be carried out by Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WISPP)
  13. 13. Family Integrated Transitions (FIT)• A family- and community-based treatment for youth with: – Co-occurring mental health and substance abuse diagnoses – Being released from secure institutions
  14. 14. Targeted Impacts• Lower risk of re-offending• Connect youth with appropriate community services• Achieve youth abstinence from drugs/alcohol• Improve mental health status and stability• Increase prosocial behavior• Improve youth’s educational level and vocational opportunities• Strengthen family’s ability to support youth
  15. 15. Social Ecological Model Community Provider Agency School Neighborhood Peers Extended Family SiblingsCaregiver CHILD Caregiver
  16. 16. FIT Integrated Treatment Model• MST is the foundation• Incorporates and builds on skills (DBT) youth learn in facilities• Uses elements of Motivational Interviewing &• Relapse Prevention
  17. 17. FIT builds on skills developed whileincarcerated, focuses on generalization – Use of evidence based approaches to treatment – Cognitive-behavioral basis – Coping Skill development: DBT – Functional analysis of behavior – Building commitment to change through motivational enhancement
  18. 18. Elements of FIT• Focus on engagement of multiple systems involved in supporting youth’s successful transition• Youth and family are assessed to determine unique needs; services are individualized• Treatment focuses on family strengths, and on goals set by the family• Attention to generalization
  19. 19. FIT addresses the multiple determinants of behavior change• Engagement factors – Commitment to change Motivational Enhancement – Participation in therapy• Family factors – Parenting skills Parent Skill Training – Family relationships Multisystemic Therapy• Systemic factors – School – Community – Faith-based organizations Multisystemic Therapy – Juvenile Justice• Individual factors – Emotion regulation – Interpersonal Effectiveness Dialectical Behavior Therapy – Substance use/abuse Relapse Prevention – Mental Health problems – Prosocial behavior

  22. 22. FIT Teams• 3-4 therapists (we use term: coach) per team – 3-5 families per coach at any given time – Frequent contact with the family, especially early on, to establish engagement and structure• 1 supervisor per team (at least 0.5 FTE)
  23. 23. FIT: Treatment• Begins 2 months before release to allow time to prepare family and systems to support successful transition and lasts approximately 4 months post-release• Therapist meets with family at least once per week• Therapist on call 24/7• Treatment takes place in the community where the youth lives
  24. 24. FIT Oversight• Weekly group supervision with supervisor• Individual supervision as indicated• Weekly telephone consultation with FIT consultants• Availability of psychiatric consultation for team and/or providers
  25. 25. The FIT Manual• Chapter 1: Overview of FIT, goals of program• Chapter 2: Description of theory and practice of key therapeutic approaches• Chapter 3: Therapist’s Toolbox• Chapter 4: Referral and Engagement• Chapter 5: Pre-Release Multisystemic Interventions• Chapter 6: Parent Behavioral Skills Training• Chapter 7: Pre-Release Sessions• Chapter 8: Homecoming• Chapter 9: Maintenance• Chapter 10: DBT skills• Chapter 11: Barriers and Solutions
  26. 26. Therapist’s Toolbox• Contains information on a variety of techniques from different intervention approaches that are to be employed throughout the intervention – Fit circles – Behavior Chain Analysis – Readiness rulers – Pros and Cons – Goal setting – Interaction techniques – Commitment strategies – Mindfulness exercises – Diary card – Educational handouts
  27. 27. FIT Benefit-Cost Analysis• Total cost of FIT per participant: $9,665• Benefits to taxpayers in criminal justice savings per participant: $19,502• Benefits to non-participants from avoided criminal victimizations per participant: $30,708• Total savings per participant =$50,210• Net gain per participant=$40,545 WSIPP 2006
  28. 28. Effects of Participation in FIT on 36-month Recidivism• Utilized stratified Cox regression to adjust for unequal distribution of African American youth in the FIT sample• Percent that did NOT have a felony conviction 36 months post-release: – FIT participants: 45.0% Comparison: 37.4% – Youth in FIT 30% less likely than youth not in FIT to have felony recidivism Wald=4.26, p=0.039, hazard ratio=.697
  29. 29. Current Programs• Four teams running in Washington State• Two teams in Chicago (randomized trial) – Youth released from IYC-Chicago & IYC- Warrenville• Two teams in NYC (randomized trial)• Two teams in Connecticut
  30. 30. Outcomes for Children’s Village teams: 12/1/11 to 5/31/12Number of youth discharged with full 24course of treatment% living at home at closure 92%% working or in school at closure 67%% with no new arrests 71%Youth placed 0%Adherence of clinicians (.61 is .74threshold) Data from www.MSTI.org for combined Children’s Village teams- data regarding client outcomes are “unofficial” in that they are not based on formal outcomes measures (e.g., archival reports of recidivism, incarceration or other institutional placement).
