The goal in corrections is to reduce risk of reoffending and help clients change their thinking and behavior. This course utilizes strategies within a case planning process by addressing criminogenic needs that most effectively protect the public and effect change in the client's criminal behavior. This will teach you a process for creating initial case plans in partnership with clients, as well as a process for ongoing case plan development.
Note: Must be taken concurrently with CJS 302 AND CJS 303 AND HSER 346. Instructor permission required from the Evidence Based Practices (EBP) in Corrections Certificate Program Coordinator.
