CEU Course Description

This CE course describes a comprehensive approach to assessment, developed by the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, that successfully addresses the following objectives of best practices in correctional assessment: resources should target high-risk offenders; programs should address needs related to each offender’s criminal behavior; and case plans should employ strategies that reflect the learning style, motivation, capacities, and circumstances of each offender.  In addition, a comprehensive summary of the history, development, and future of the Correctional Assessment and Intervention System (CAIS) and the Juvenile Assessment and Intervention System (JAIS) are provided.
