Amount in Stock

This satellite/Internet broadcast provides information about NIC's initiative on statewide implementation of effective correctional management of offenders in the community. Panelists from the Crime and Justice Institute, Inc., and NIC described the model constructs and processes used to facilitate practical application of the effective intervention principles in the two states serving as project sites. This presentation helps correctional administrators develop plans and processes for organizational and system assessment, staff development and evaluation, program development and evaluation, and retrieval of information necessary to measure results. The panel addresses how to thoughtfully consider the selection and adoption of key tools for assessment and cognitive restructuring after a realistic implementation plan is in place. In addition to emphasizing effective intervention principles, the model highlights critical issues related to organizational development and collaboration.
