"THE INTERSECTION OF RISK, NEED, AND RESPONSIVITY: IMPLICATIONS OF CURRENT DOSAGE RESEARCH FOR CORRECTIONAL PRACTITIONERS"

November 17, 2014
Registration 8:30 a.m. to 9 a.m.
Program 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Talbert House Training Room
2600 Victory Parkway
Cincinnati, OH 45206

TRAINING FACILITATOR:

Kimberly Sperber, PhD, Chief Research Officer, Talbert House

TRAINING OVERVIEW:

The risk principle suggests that effective correctional programs should vary the intensity of treatment by offender risk, while the need principle directs practitioners to allocate most of their treatment efforts toward criminogenic needs. The responsivity principle then dictates the methods practitioners should use to target these criminogenic needs. Although research indicates that programs targeting higher risk clients are more effective and that use of certain treatment strategies are more effective than others, research identifying appropriate dosage levels for evidence-based treatment of criminogenic needs is more limited. Consequently, many programs allocate services by risk level with limited evidence to guide them. In response, Talbert House has constructed a research agenda to answer practical questions about the application of dosage by risk across treatment settings and offender populations. Results and implications of these studies will be presented and discussed. Practical strategies for providing and tracking dosage will also be discussed.
