Judge Roger K Warren, National Center for State Governments
WHEN: June 10, 2012
An extensive body of research exists on the major risk factors associated with criminal conduct, which are static versus dynamic, and which are most strongly correlated with recidivism.
This webinar will review the criminogenic needs and dynamic risk factors associated with criminal conduct and recidivism risk for persons under community supervision. The presentation will also cover risk and needs assessment approaches and tools that are evidence-based, and discuss how best to utilize these tools for improving accuracy in predicting recidivism and how to align interventions to target those offender characteristics that have the greatest influence on the likelihood to re-offend.
