How Community Supervision Agencies Can Develop and Implement Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans

Past Event
June 13, 2018, 8:00 am

Hosted by the National Reentry Resource Center, with funding support from the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance

Many programs struggle to develop and maintain case plans that help their participants reduce their risk for recidivating and advance their goals for recovery. To address this challenge, the web-based tool, Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans: Addressing Criminogenic Risk and Behavioral Health Needs, provides resources that can help criminal justice and behavioral health professionals better integrate critical behavioral health and criminogenic risk and needs information into case plans that actively engage the participant and reflect interagency collaboration. The National Reentry Resource Center is hosting a series of webinars to discuss how professionals can use this web-based tool, as well as highlight what it looks like when different types of agencies take the lead in overseeing the case planning process.

This webinar, the third in the series, focusses on a community supervision agency as the lead case planner and features the reentry program of San Joaquin County Probation Department in Stockton, California. This webinar provides an overview of the San Joaquin County program and discuss the program’s processes in three key areas: (1) interagency collaboration and information sharing; (2) staff training; and (3) screening and assessment as part of their collaborative comprehensive case plan process.

Panelists:

  • Andre Bethea, Policy Advisor for Corrections, Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Miguel Avila, Senior Deputy Probation Officer, San Joaquin County Probation Department
  • Juan Garcia, Clinician, San Joaquin County Behavioral Health Services
  • Mark Stovell, Policy Analyst, The Council of State Governments Justice Center
