The prediction of recidivism risk and the identification of criminogenic needs are key to evidence-based practice in correctional settings. Published by Northpointe Inc (www.northpointeinc.com), the Correctional Offender Management Profile for Alternative Sanctions (COMPAS) is a 22-scale actuarial risk assessment tool intended to assess risk for general offending and violations across offender populations. Completed via a computer-assisted assessment, the COMPAS contains static and dynamic risk factors and incorporates self-report, official record, and interview information. Presented by the lead developer of the COMPAS, this On Demand workshop will train you in the use of the COMPAS while earning 6 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the COMPAS will be discussed, instructions will be given on how to reliably score the COMPAS scales and interpret their findings, a review of the peer-reviewed research on the COMPAS will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply COMPAS reporting conventions. Should you need to purchase a COMPAS manual, please visit Northpointe, Inc.
More cost-effective and time-efficient than attending an in-person workshop but covering the same content, this innovative On Demand training is the first-of-its-kind.
