A seven-step process for developing and designing a training program according to the ITIP (instructional theory into practice) format is described. Curriculum developers will be taught to create programs that will: teach state-of-the-art information and skills based upon needs assessment analysis; employ learner-centered technologies; help participants succeed with realistic performance objectives; facilitate the transfer of learning to the job setting; promote consistency between training programs; document knowledge and skills taught, teaching methods used, and evaluation of the learning; and promote the inclusion of a lesson plan.

Prescription Drugs of Abuse and Misuse in Jails and Prisons [Webinar]

Webinar held December 19, 2019.

 Relationships between staff and inmates can start to blur, and in doing so it can put correctional staff in harms way.  This webinar is intended to equip correctional staff with the information needed to examine the precursors of staff and inmate interaction that could lead to harmful and inappropriate acts, up to and including sexual misconduct.

Webinar presenters explore how staff accountability and responsibility are the two most important factors in protection against inappropriate behaviors.  Presenters look at indicators, red flags, and preventative measures that keep the balance of safety and security in a healthy environment for both staff and inmates.
