Past Event
July 13, 2023, 2:00- 3:30pm , Eastern

Hosted by The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and the U.S Department of Justice’s Office of Justice Programs’ Bureau of Justice Assistance

The Council of State Governments (CSG) Justice Center and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) will host part two of the fieldwide webinar series on the risk-need-responsivity (RNR) model. Building on the first session, which covered the 18 components of the expanded model, session two will focus on RNR with individuals who have behavioral health needs and how responsivity principles can help address those needs as well as criminogenic needs. The presentation will discuss how to incorporate a trauma-informed perspective and how to tailor interventions to individuals with mental illnesses, substance use disorders, and co-occurring disorders in the justice system to achieve better outcomes.

Speakers:

  • David D’Amora, Senior Policy Advisor, CSG Justice Center
  • Maria Fryer, Justice Systems and Mental Health Policy Advisor, Substance Abuse and Mental Health, Bureau of Justice Assistance, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Ethan Kelly, Senior Policy Analyst, CSG Justice Center
