Below are webinar descriptions and supporting materials for this series. Evidence-based programs and practices EBPs still have to be implemented with fidelity and integrity in order to be successful. Unfortunately, implementation is not an easy task.
Implementation science, however, can help practitioners tackle implementation challenges so the promise of EBPs can be more fully realized.
This webinar describes three common approaches for being evidence-based and the inherent implementation challenges associated with each. It demonstrates the importance and difficulty of sound implementation using real world examples, and describes key lessons learned from implementation science that practitioners can use across a range of settings to deliver EBPs with greater fidelity, thereby improving outcomes.
Both CJCCs collaborate with the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services to conduct criminal justice system and youth services planning, apply for and allocate grant funds, and deliver assistance within their service areas.
During this webinar, participants learned about how the Ohio Office of Criminal Justice Services collaborates with local CJCCs and learn about initiatives under way in those counties to reduce over-incarceration and reduce the length of stay for people with serious mental illness in jails.
While varied in scope and purpose, strong strategic planning follows specific key steps and includes certain key features. States and communities determine the public safety problem, assess necessary services, identify existing gaps in state and local programs and develop and implement action plans to address the problem.
Clear-eyed data analysis informs the process from planning to implementation and evaluation. In this practical, hands-on webinar, participants learned about the goals for statewide strategic planning, how to get started, and how to build upon planning efforts already underway in the state, including the new requirement for including a strategic plan in the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant program.
This webinar covered key tools in the planning process, such as SWOT analysis strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats and the sequential intercept model SIMa tool policymakers use to identify key points for intercepting and linking individuals with behavioral health issues to programs and services that will help prevent their further penetration into the criminal justice system.
With a mounting body of science that shows which interventions work; decision makers are increasingly focused on how to best integrate this knowledge into program interventions, management strategies and funding decisions.
This webinar looks closely at the Evidence-based Policymaking: Speakers from New Mexico and Massachusetts discuss how their states have used evidence to inform funding and practice decisions; ultimately changing how justice and human service interventions are administered across their respective states.
Leveraging Health Care Reform to Enhance Successful Reentry Download slides Maricopa County ROI With more than 11 million people cycling through US jails every year and an estimated percent of corrections spending going to inmate health and behavioral healthcare, there is an obvious need to not only focus on reentry but also on improving the continuity of care for individuals returning to the community.
This webinar highlights planning efforts currently underway in Louisville, Kentucky and in Maricopa County, Arizona.
Speakers address how their multi-disciplinary planning efforts have used healthcare reform to bring together justice and health agencies to begin addressing the complex needs of returning offenders. In addition, speakers discuss how these planning efforts have led to the integration of health insurance enrollment, improved awareness of behavioral health needs, increased health insurance literacy and the development of an information sharing portal to help track justice and health super-utilizers.
Now, with heroin overdoses deaths doubling from to and the steady rise in heroin initiation sincehealth and justice system leaders are struggling to deal with the opioid crisis.
While criminal justice efforts have focused on the supply side of opioid availability, much less public attention has been paid to treatment and demand reduction strategies. This webinar explores what the science says works in helping individuals with opioid use disorders.
This webinar discusses the scope of the problem, the research behind medication assisted therapies and how behavioral interventions can enhance treatment effectiveness. The Evidence Behind Swift and Certain Sanctions in Community Supervision Download slides Historically, many community supervision agencies have had few meaningful intermediate sanctions for when offenders are found in violation; agencies have had the unenviable task of trying to improve offender accountability with few tools to increase compliance.
In an effort to enhance offender accountability, many localities over the last decade have tested programs to improve the speed and certainty of intermediate sanctions. Thanks to these initiatives and their accompanying research, there is now a robust body of evidence supporting the fact that swift and certain sanctions can improve accountability, substance abuse abstinence and lower revocations.
The Evidence Behind Swift and Certain Sanctions in Community Supervision, will explore the effects of this model and highlight one local and one statewide project that have substantially implemented the model as part of their community supervision strategies.
SAC is an approach to community supervision pretrial, probation, and parole that employs swift responses to violations of the conditions of supervision, with certain but modest sanctions.
The Resource Center assists interested jurisdictions with developing, implementing, and testing SAC models that are specific to their needs, capabilities, and characteristics, and which respond to lessons learned during implementation and testing.Criminal Justice Review is a scholarly journal dedicated to presenting a broad perspective on criminal justice issues.
It focuses on any aspect of crime and the justice system and can feature local, state, or national concerns. Both qualitative and quantitative pieces are encouraged, providing that they adhere to standards of quality scholarship. Erin Allain joined CJI in March and brings years of experience in research and teaching on the criminal justice system.
At CJI, Erin works on the NIC Transition from Jail to Community Initiative and the training team. Since the mids, when it suffered a wave of terrorist attacks, France has refined a preemptive criminal justice approach to countering terrorism, which many of its officials regard as a model.
