Introduction to Evidence Based Practices in Corrections- What works in changing offender behavior and protecting victims
This second webinar in a three-part series provides and introduction to the research, science and practices that can significantly improve offender outcomes and reduce recidivism – providing future protection to victims and potential victims. Over the past 20 years community-based corrections have evolved significantly. Systems that employ evidence-based practices can demonstrate upwards of 20% reductions in recidivism, especially for higher risk offenders. Assessments, engagement, graduated sanctions, as well as successful strategies all play a significant role in helping offenders change their destructive behaviors.
This webinar is hosted by National Criminal Justice Training Center of Fox Valley Technical College with support from the TA2TA Project through the National Council of Juvenile and Family Court Judges.
