Effective Case Management
Individual case planning that matches assessed risks/needs to services and case management that provides appropriate levels and types of support to address those risks/needs, are consistently documented as good practice in the research and practice literature. Effective Case Management (ECM) is a motivational approach designed to help practitioners move beyond the risk/need assessment and use motivational strategies to guide case work practices. One instrument that has gained much popularity over the last several years in the classification of adult offenders is the Level of Service Inventory-Revised (LSI-R). The LSI-R is used in a variety of correctional contexts undefined it is valid for all types of offenders across jurisdictions.
Workshop participants will be provided with an overview of the Effective Case Management model, the Level of Service Inventory-Revised, Motivational Interviewing, and the Stages of Change models. A case study will be presented and participants will practice “walking through” the four-step ECM model to ensure skill generalization.
•· Introduce a model for Effective Case Management.
•· Apply what we know about “change” to the case management process.
•· Prove an overview of case management implementation.
•· Introduction to the development and basic principles and theories of the LSI-R.
•· Uses of the LSI-R.
•· Identify principles of effective interventions for probation/supervised release.
