Event description


Workshop Description

This workshop presentation will focus on the practical application of a widely accepted theory of criminal conduct known as the Risk-Need-Responsivity (RNR) model in guiding offender management and rehabilitation. The RNR principles are well-supported by empirical research and endorsed by many correctional organizations across North America and other parts of the world. After summarizing the history of RNR and the science behind it, this presentation will focus on translating RNR principles into practice; describe what that looks like; and examine the potential challenges of implementation. The goal is to offer practical tools to effectively implement these principles at a grassroots level with adult male sex offenders. It is designed primarily for clinicians and community supervision professionals who may be familiar with the model, but have yet to figure out its application to their clinical and supervisory work.
