VIRTUAL TRAINING


"Changing Offender Behavior through Effective Application of Dosage by Risk"

November 6, 2020





4 COBs, 4 CEUs, 4 RCHs

PRESENTER:

KIMBERLY SPERBER, PhD, Director, Center for Health and Human Services Research at Talbert House


PROGRAM SYNOPSIS

The risk principle suggests that effective correctional programs should vary the intensity of treatment by offender risk. Although research indicates that programs targeting higher risk cases are more effective, research identifying appropriate dosage levels for treatment and supervision has been more limited. This means that historically, many organizations have allocated services by risk level with limited evidence to guide them. In response, Talbert House constructed a research agenda to begin answering practical questions about the application of dosage by risk across treatment settings and justice-involved populations that now guides risk-based dosage efforts in Ohio. Results and implications of dosage studies will be presented and discussed so that participants understand the empirical evidence underlying mandatory state standards related to dosage. Participants will also contribute to discussions about what is still unknown about dosage and the implications for current day practices. Finally, participants will discuss barriers that they face in effectively matching dosage to risk and participate in a brainstorming session to mitigate these barriers.

This session is appropriate for community corrections, criminal justice and behavioral health professionals who are interested in intervention with the community corrections and criminal-justice involved populations.
