PROGRAM SUMMARY

Days 1 - April 5, 2017

Pre-Conference Workshop

Becoming An Evidence-Based Justice Practitioner: Core Skills For Counseling & Working With The Justice Involved Citizens

This training is standardized formal education for supervision, case management and coordination teams working with justice-involved adults and youth. Such teams would include counselors, community services providers, courts and probation staff, social workers and clinical teams.

The program fleshes out the evidence-based "common elements" they must possess as practitioners to help their clients address challenges impeding their success - vs punishing, warning or "rehabilitating". It has been developed as a “pathway or logic model” to help practitioners hone capabilities in the essential skills they must possess to work effectively with their clients.

Days 2 & 3 - April 6-7, 2017

Select One (1) Comprehensive 2-Day Session

Strategy & Tactics for Effective Community Supervision of Justice Involved Citizens

  • Day-1 - Core Skills for Evidence-Based & Strength-Centered Counseling, Case Management & Care Coordination

This program examines how in a mandated setting case management is often seen as an activity that lacks the importance of clinical and professional services, requiring only instructions and compliance monitoring. In fact case management is the pivotal activity by which all other supports and services are made viable. Case-management has been a natural part of probation, parole and other services supervising clients at various stages of transitioning back into community. It examines the nature and quality of resources coordination to enhance and maximize the client's opportunities to success in the community.

  • Day-2 - Advance Skills for Evidence-Based & Strength-Centered Counseling & Contact Moments

This program examines the nature of contact moments between the individuals providing services and the reentering citizens. Fundamentaly, offender success in community is determined in large part by what transpires at the moment the provider interacts directly with the client. It can mean the difference between the client who succeeds, or one who remains "stuck".

 

Employment Focused Career Services: Core Skills for Durable Workforce Development

The program is designed to address current and coming trends for helping clients become gainfully employed - even in the face of severe barriers.  Oriented toward getting clients ready with skills currently demanded by area employers, this program teaches participants how to expand the range of resources available for meeting the job search and job retention needs of the difficult to serve client.

 

Motivational Interviewing (MI): Core Skills for Durable Behavioral Change

Teams perform like the pros they are using Motivational Interviewing skills. MI is proven to be fully compatible with various approaches as a method that helps people resolve ambivalence toward change through discovery of intrapersonal fuel by placing complete responsibility for change on the individual. Its a must have method in your tool kit.

 

Debrief & Action Planning Session

A highlight of Joyfields Institute programs is the debrief and development of action plans participants can implement upon their return home.

“I liked that the information was tactical, action-oriented, and given from the perspective of organizational development. I liked that we were provided with specific tools (questionnaires and assessments) to utilize with our agencies. I am in strong agreement that we need to focus on internal processes and on staff outcomes as part of an evidence-based approach and I think it's great that the workshop highlighted this throughout “
