Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance.
Practice skills to effectively resolve disturbances that may arise in community supervision, during home visits or search and seizure, or in a court setting. Review the Disturbance Resolution model, a framework for determining what level of force is necessary and reasonable in various situations. Explore the legal justification for using force as well as situational desirability, threat assessment opportunities, officer versus subject factors and effective communication techniques.
Research suggests that as many as 60 percent of adolescents and adults with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD) come into contact with the criminal justice system. FASD is a prenatal brain injury that can make understanding and complying with probation conditions difficult, putting this population at higher risk for recidivism. Learn effective supervision strategies to improve supervision outcomes, prevent crime, and reduce recidivism. During the webinar, participants will:
Explore techniques to recognize drug inﬂuence when conducting home visits, search and seizure, or other interactions with probationers. Develop the critical skills to recognize common paraphernalia and the signs and symptoms of persons under the inﬂuence of stimulants, hallucinogens, opiates, marijuana, alcohol, depressants, inhalants, and dissociative anesthetics through hands-on instruction.
This webinar will discuss steps reentry programs can take to partner with local child support agencies. It will explore the direction the federal child support office has taken to emphasize and provide guidance for supportive programming, review existing resources, and highlight examples of innovative partnerships designed to support parents in reentry to strengthen their relationships with their children.
