Providing effective mental health treatment for justice-involved persons presents unique challenges. This webinar will provide an opportunity for meaningful discussion related to specific interventions and issues for providing effective treatment for this special population.
The presentation will provide a theoretical overview of the stages of anti-social entrenchment that contribute to criminogenic risk including gender-specific pathways, opportunities for pro-social change and strategies for sustaining pro-social supports post-release. It will address clinical practice issues for effectively treating criminogenic risk and motivating and supporting desistance, including the therapeutic alliance, trust, accountability, confidentiality, transference, issues for supervision, and sensitivity training needs for clinicians.
