  • Please note that these provider services are not centrally located to one provider. Also, education is only really offered through Simeon Resources and they are more of a guide that helps the individual navigate the admissions process, provides a space for taking the GED, but no actual classes take place for ABE and GRE.It is also important to remember that non-criminogenic factors such as self-esteem, fear of punishment, physical conditioning, understanding one’s culture or history, and creative abilities will not have much effect on recidivism rates.The counseling line shows (X) under criminogenic needs. This because from what I can gather, the type of counseling available tends to be abuse centric. Behavior modification counseling isn’t really covered as many of the providers focus on the greater need of truamacounceling. Also, some of the providers represented in this list are only able to offer services to Medicare recipients.Also note, many community based providers are gender specific.

    2. 2.   Today’s workshop is sponsored by grant #2011-CZ-BX- 0039 from the Bureau of Justice Assistance, Office of Justice Programs, United States Department of Justice  Information presented and opinions of the presenter do not necessarily represent those of the USDOJ  Presenter:  Roberto Hugh Potter, Ph.D. Director of Research Partnerships (and soon to be department chair) UCF Department of Criminal Justice, College of Health & Public Affairs STANDARD DISCLOSURE
    3. 3.   Update you on the re-entry efforts conducted to date at Orange County Corrections;  Introduce you to the concept of “criminogenics”;  Discuss “evidence-based practices”(EBPs):  To locate them for intervention and grant purposes;  To understand the levels of evidence  Discuss integrating EBPs with criminogenic needs  Discuss the role of community- and faith-based organizations in maintaining EBPs as part of re-entry programs into the community. OBJECTIVES
    4. 4.   Design an evidence-based program (EBP) to:  Assess a sub-set of inmates for criminogenic risk;  Select an E-B risk assessment tool  Train staff to employ assessment tool  Implement EBPs to address (dynamic) criminogenic needs while incarcerated;  Cognitive-behavioral modification training  Education and employment attainment  Substance abuse/dependence treatment readiness  Social welfare needs RE-ENTRY PLAN
    5. 5.   Criminogenic = factors that have been consistently associated with the commission of criminal behaviors, such as:  prior criminal behaviors and involvement (criminal record),  substance abuse,  family dysfunction,  anti-social/criminal peers,  certain personality traits,  low self-control,  criminal thinking patterns, and  poor social involvement, among others CRIMINO – WHAT?
    6. 6.  Changeable Unchangeable Friends and associates Prior record Attitudes and values (lack of empathy) Criminal history Problem solving skills Family criminal history Employment status Substance abuse Self-control skills DYNAMIC VS. STATIC  NEEDS= What to target (Dynamic)
    7. 7.   Our goal is to match criminogenic need with an evidence-based intervention to address that need;  Commonly referred to as “RNR”:  Risk  Need  Responsivity  Also concerned with program “fidelity” or the conduct of a program as it was intended to be implemented. NEED = INTERVENTION?
    8. 8.  Evidence-Based Practices Social Service Needs Criminogenic Needs FOCUS ON MATCHING NEEDS
    9. 9.   Required for funding!  “Best Practices”  often based on the collective experience and wisdom of the field rather than scientifically tested knowledge.  “What Works”  implies linkage to general outcomes, but does not specify the kind of outcomes desired  “Evidence-Based Practice” implies that  1) there is a definable outcome(s);  2) it is measurable; and  3) it is defined according to practical realities Source: Crime & Justice Institute. RH Potter, Ph.D. CCJ6118 WHY EBP?
    11. 11.  GOLD  Experimental/control research design with controls for attrition  Significant sustained reductions in recidivism obtained  Multiple site replications  Preponderance of all evidence supports effectiveness  SILVER  Quasi-experimental control research with appropriate statistical controls for comparison group  Significant sustained reductions in recidivism obtained  Multiple site replications  Preponderance of all evidence supports effectiveness  BRONZE  Matched comparison group without complete statistical controls  Significant sustained reductions in recidivism obtained  Multiple site replications  Preponderance of all evidence supports effectiveness  IRON  Conflicting findings and/or inadequate research designs  DIRT  Silver and Gold research showing negative outcomes RH Potter, Ph.D. CCJ6118 LEVELS OF EMPIRICAL SUPPORT EXPLAINED
    12. 12.   – Department of Justice rating of evidence-base for criminal justice interventions  - National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (substance abuse & mental health)  rep_debi.htm - HIV/STD-related programs IDENTIFYING EBPS
    13. 13.   Our target is medium-high to high criminogenic risk offenders returning from jail to the community;  Some “frequent fliers” may have low to medium criminogenic risk, but heavy social service needs;  “Do no harm” – our programs could do more harm than good if applied to this group.  Social service needs are not criminogenic in themselves, but may be needed to support reductions in criminal behavior; SOCIAL SERVICES
    14. 14.   Criminogenic Risk Assessment – ORAS  Cognitive-behavioral intervention – Thinking for a Change (T4C)  Education/Employment Training -  Substance Abuse/Dependency Awareness –  Social Service Interventions –  Begin case management planning and establish linkages to community-based providers WHAT THE JAIL IS DOING – WHERE WE ARE
    15. 15.   Continue interventions into the community  Monitor follow-through on referrals for service in the community  Monitor utilization of services in the community  Evaluate community impact of services delivered other than return to jail WHAT THE JAIL CAN’T DO
    16. 16.   Develop cadre of community organizations (civic- and faith-based) to partner in case management  Built from in-jail EBPs  “Seamless” transition to community resources  Case management in community  Maintain emphasis on criminogenic risk reduction WHERE WE WANT TO GO
    17. 17.   Set up network  Create strong ties with providers  Maintenance  Consistent check ins with clients  Consistent check-ins with providers  Detailed files are kept on clients and updated regularly  Measurement  Program progress is thoroughly documented by case manager in a program specific data base  Data can be pulled from this data base and run (at minimum) once per quarter.  Regular analysis of gathered data will highlight programs strengths and weaknesses M & M
    18. 18.   Need to identify county services being utilized by program participants and their families;  Want to develop seamless transitions from jail-based programs into, or building upon, current involvement in other county services;  Want to work with other county services to maintain emphasis on criminogenic risk reduction while in other programs. OTHER COUNTY SERVICES
    19. 19.   Same outcomes desired!  Are there faith- and community-based organizations that currently employ E-B criminogenic risk reduction programs?  Snow-ball sample of providers suggests that, beyond substance abuse and mental health, the answer is “no”  What will it take to get F/CBOs on board with the program?  What if they don’t want to adopt our EBPs? OTHER COMMUNITY SERVICES
    20. 20. Provider Services Criminogenic Needs Social Needs Identification X Substance Abuse Tx X X Housing X Education X Counseling (case specific) (X) X Basic Life Skills X Employment X X Social Support Networks X X Family Services X Mental Health X Food/Clothing X Medications/Physical Healthcare X Transportation GAP ANALYSIS
    21. 21.   Participation of other County-funded services in the re-entry program, in-jail and the community;  Recruitment of community-/faith-based services into the re-entry program;  Commitment to the criminogenic risk reduction EBPs identified by the jail program WHAT WE NEED
