Training Description
Minimal progress in the treatment of justice-involved Persons with Mental Illness (PMI) has been made in the last 30 years (Snyder, 2007). To improve criminal justice outcomes, services must be provided that address the underlying causes of criminal behavior (e.g., Hodgins et al., 2007). Unfortunately, justice-involved PMI have limited access to comprehensive treatments that target co-occurring issues of mental illness and criminal behavior (Morgan et al., 2010). In this workshop, participants are provided with a model for and summary of evidenced-based interventions for justice-involved PMI in correctional or community mental health settings.
This 12-hour On Demand workshop is designed for professionals working to improve care for justice-involved PMI regardless of setting (e.g., community mental health, corrections, forensic). The workshop begins by reviewing the prevalence rates of mental illness in corrections, including both incarcerated and community settings. The workshop will then provide participants with evidenced-based correctional interventions for offenders and evidenced-based mental health interventions for PMI. Specifically, the Risk-Need-Responsivity (RNR) will be reviewed as a model of service delivery for offenders, and psychosocial rehabilitation will be reviewed as a model of service delivery for PMI. Finally, participants will be provided with a theoretical model to guide interventions for justice-involved PMI, as well as to teach evidenced-based practices for intervening with this population. To accomplish this, the workshop presents criminality and mental illness as co-occurring problems, and the Changing Lives and Changing Outcomes: A Treatment Program for Justice Involved PMI, an evidenced-based intervention for this clinical population, will be summarized.
Training participants should have access to the book “Treatment Manual for Justice Involved Persons with Mental Illness” purchasable through the books publisher. For details, visit:
