The Forensic ACT Model (FACT)
Merging Recovery-centered Mental Health Services and Criminal Justice Evidence-based Practices to Address Criminogenic Needs

WHEN: October 24, 2012

How do recovery-based mental health service models like Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) need to be enhanced in order to be effective in lowering recidivism among criminal justice populations?

This webinar will provide a brief overview of ACT’s theoretical underpinnings, full fidelity model and research base, followed by several practice examples and a facilitated discussion of adaptations made in real-world practice with forensic populations, what’s working and what’s not, and integration of co-occurring services. The presentation will offer helpful tips for curricula, instruments and tools, and for creating effective partnerships with criminal justice agencies to improve client outcomes and reduce recidivism.
