EBP Conference 2021 Session 22

Community Supervision of Persons with Complex Diagnosis to Support Outcomes

Thursday 8/26/2021 9:00 AM - 10:30 AM CST

Working to make people successful within their own community requires an astute eye for barriers and strengths. People we serve are much more than what we see in the office or court setting. Outreach into the community and homes makes a significant difference in stability and outcomes. Service providers, probation officers, etc. can see problems that a consumer might not recognize as a problem, may lack the tools to address, or may be reluctant to discuss. By ongoing assessment driven interventions and support in the community, people with complex co-morbid disorders can do much better. This presentation will discuss some of those skills via Risk, Needs and Responsivity principles.
