Crime and violence are highly socially connected. As criminal justice practitioners continue to learn about the small percent of the population responsible for the majority of violence, they have to use data analysis tools to focus resources (prevention, intervention, and enforcement) on the small world of people at high risk for being involved in violence, either as offenders or victims. This webinar will examine how social network analysis (SNA) can be applied to criminal justice data to better understand the small world of violence.

Although drug and alcohol treatment are common mandates in the U.S. criminal justice system, many clients do not initiate treatment.

This webinar will explore:
- Clinical features of MAPIT,
- Research findings from a randomized controlled trial, and
- A cost-effectiveness study.
