Attend a Webinar to Learn About Improving Job Readiness and Retention for Higher Risk Populations

Join the Council of State Governments Justice Center and the National Reentry Resource Center for the “Improving Job Readiness and Retention for Higher Risk Populations” webinar on Wednesday, August 28 from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. ET. During this webinar, participants will learn about the integration of social learning and/or cognitive behavioral approaches, as well as other risk reduction strategies, in employment program models.

The prevention of recidivism among a majority of federal and state prisoners who will eventually reenter the community relies heavily on their ability to obtain employment. Job placement services can help make the difference between reincarceration and successful reentry. It is equally important to ensure that people who are returning from incarceration have the skills needed to retain their jobs. The webinar presentation includes lessons that apply to corrections professionals and workforce development administrators and practitioners, as well as community-based reentry service providers who focus on improving employment outcomes for people at risk of reoffending.

Webinar presenters will review the following topics:

  • Assessing community-based providers’ use of best practices that show success in reducing recidivism and enhancing job readiness;
  • Selecting a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) curriculum and strategies for sequencing CBT sessions;
  • Integrating cognitive behavioral interventions with subsidized and unsubsidized job placement;
  • Providing treatment dosage in accordance to a person’s risk to reoffend and associated needs; and
  • Designing a behavior management system that encourages participants to manage their own behavior based on a system of incentives and consequences.

Register for the webinar today.
