Justice-Treatment Interface; A Cross-Discipline Training Course.
Faegre, Christopher L.; And Others
This manual is designed to assist those helping professionals who work with drug abusing offenders, either as counselors or mental health aides from drug abuse treatment systems or probation officers or jailers from the criminal justice system. This course first provides a conceptual framework or "Perspectives" on the subject area in Unit I, followed in Unit II by didactic presentations and experimental labs in which participants master the generic "Processes" used in screening, assessing, treating, and rehabilitation abusing offenders. Unit III explores various "Applications" of the course content to specific program areas such as Treatment Alternatives to Street Crime (TASC), institutional programs, and re-entry programs. A set of pre- and post-tests developed around content material, attitudinal impact, and behavioral intentions is also provided. (Author/HLM)
