End Misconception, Beat Recidivism, And Commence Empowerment

Why This Course?

In response to ongoing, legislatively directed change, the diversion of offenders from the state prisons to county control has been actively implemented in California since 2011.  As individuals reenter their communities for treatment in programs designed to ultimately reduce both prison overcrowding and recidivism, behavioral health clinicians often need additional training to help them effectively respond to the multidimensional and complex issues presented by the growing target population.

This course meets the requirements for 6 hours of continuing education credit for LMFTs, LCSWs, LPCCs/or LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences and 6 hours of continuing education credit for Alcohol and other Drug Counselors, Licensed, Certified or Registered by CCAPP.  

All attendees receive a 55-page Participant Workbook that supplements the information presented and contains the active learning worksheets and vignettes.

WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE?

This course is designed specifically for clinicians who want to be more knowledgeable, skilled and effective in working with the reentering population.  Clinicians need to understand context and develop a specific cultural competence to successfully treat this population.

INSTRUCTIONAL OBJECTIVES:

  • List and discuss at least three criminogenic need factors
