Event Dates

This webinar will review a variety of research-based tools community supervision agencies have adopted over the past years – including the use of a risk and needs assessment, motivational interviewing, cognitive intervention practices, case management, and graduated responses – that supports shifting participants to seeing themselves as coaches of behavior change rather than simply monitors of compliance. The webinar will explore how community supervision practitioners can obtain skills to improve client-staff interactions and use evidence-based tools such as case plans and cognitive behavioral interventions to effectively coach youth towards long-term behavior change. Participants will leave this session with the tools to create a plan to implement a similar structure.
