Evidence-Based Practices in Correctional Mental Health Healthcare Seminar

PROGRAM DETAILS

Effective Evidence-Based Practices with Offender Populations

Evidence-based practice has been encouraged in a variety of treatment settings—including correctional settings. It can be argued that evidence-based treatment (EBT) is even more crucial in such settings due to the consequences for not delivering effective treatments to offenders (e.g., increased recidivism, violence, suicidality, mismanagement of taxpayer resources, etc.). Despite this, many correctional facilities/systems do not put a premium on EBT, do not insure proper training of staff in EBTs, and instead promote programs that sound effective, but are not supported by research.

This seminar will explore mental illness in offenders and the role of mental health professionals in correctional settings. Attendees will obtain up-to-date knowledge of current best practices with regard to treatments and interventions with offenders. Challenges of delivering EBT with this population, as well as the rewards of doing so, will be identified. Course participants will discuss how to present EBT programs to correctional management in order to promote the use of effective strategies to reduce offenders' mental health symptoms and improve mental health and correctional outcomes.

 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Analyze common psychological problems seen in the correctional population, as well as strategies for targeting treatment

• Discuss the prevalence of mental illness in correctional populations and articulate clear reasons for allocating treatment resources to this population

• Compare the features of multiple evidence-based treatments used with correctional clients and how to adapt generally-used treatment modalities to this population

• Assess the challenges of working with special offender populations, such as malingering, female offenders, the aging, those with health problems, and non-English speaking offenders

• Identify characteristics and reasoning behind utilizing evidence-based treatments with a correctional population

• Outline the principles of effective intervention with correctional clients

• Recognize common challenges in delivering evidence-based treatments in correctional settings

• Describe methods of working with special offender populations using evidence-based strategies

• Outline a strategy with which to implement evidence-based treatments at your facility, and how to present this to management
