Many programs struggle to develop and maintain case plans that help their participants reduce their risk for recidivating and advance their goals for recovery. To address this challenge, the web-based tool, Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans: Addressing Criminogenic Risk and Behavioral Health Needs, provides resources that can help criminal justice and behavioral health professionals better integrate critical behavioral health and criminogenic risk and needs information into case plans that actively engage the participant and reflect interagency collaboration. The National Reentry Resource Center is hosting a series of webinars to discuss how professionals can use this web-based tool, as well as highlight what it looks like when different types of agencies take the lead in overseeing the case planning process.
The third webinar in this series will focus on a community supervision agency as the lead case planner and feature the reentry program of San Joaquin County Probation Department in Stockton, California. This webinar will provide an overview of the San Joaquin County program and discuss the program’s processes in three key areas: (1) interagency collaboration and information sharing; (2) staff training; and (3) screening and assessment as part of their collaborative comprehensive case plan process.
