Evidence-based practices (EBPs) are interventions that have been rigorously tested and have yielded consistent replicable results, and have proven to be safe, beneficial, and effective. Several years ago, SAMHSA’s GAINS Center convened an expert panel to discuss EBPs for people involved in the criminal justice system, and to develop EBP briefs. Recently, these experts have updated these briefs to reflect the latest research and practices in the field. Hosted by SAMSHA, this five-part webinar series will provide updates on the following topics: forensic assertive community treatment, employment for individuals with mental illnesses involved in the criminal justice system, illness management and recovery, integrating mental health and substance abuse services for people with co-occurring disorders involved in criminal justice system, and risk-needs-responsivity and cognitive-behavioral interventions.
