Webinar - Using Web-Based Motivational Assessment Strategies: MAPIT

Thursday May 17, 2018 - 01:00pm to 02:00pm EDT
Event Description: 

Although drug and alcohol treatment are common mandates in the U.S. criminal justice system, many clients do not initiate treatment. The Motivational Assessment Program to Initiate Treatment (MAPIT) is a web-based motivational intervention that addresses this gap by linking a person’s risk and needs factors to case plans that the client can develop.

This webinar will explore:

  • Clinical features of MAPIT,
  • Research findings from a randomized controlled trial, and
  • A cost-effectiveness study.


  • Faye S. Taxman, Ph.D., University Professor, George Mason University, and Director, Center for Advancing Correctional Excellence!;
  • Scott T. Walters, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Health Behavior and Health Systems, University of North Texas Health Science Center; and
  • Alexander J. Cowell, Ph.D., Research Scientist, RTI International.
