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 assist their participants in reducing their risk for recidivating and advancing their goals for recovery. However, the web-based tool Collaborative Comprehensive Case Plans: Addressing Criminogenic Risk and Behavioral Health Needs can help criminal justice and behavioral health professionals better integrate critical behavioral health and criminogenic risk and needs information into collaborative comprehensive case plans that actively engage the participant. The National Reentry Resource Center will host a series of webinars to discuss how corrections and behavioral health professionals can use this web-based tool and highlight different agencies as lead case planners that oversee the case planning process.

The first webinar in this series focuses on a correctional agency as the lead case planner and features the reentry program of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office (FCSO) in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The webinar provides a conceptual overview of the FCSO reentry program and discusses 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.
