Webinar Description: The Good Lives Model (GLM) is a strengths-based rehabilitation approach that augments the risk, need, and responsivity principles of effective correctional intervention through its focus on assisting clients to develop and implement meaningful life plans that are incompatible with future offending. While much has been written on the GLM, this workshop focuses on how the GLM –properly adapted – can be used with young women. This webinar closely examines many of its individual tenets (e.g., approach goals, primary goods). Consideration is given to family involvement and how the etiology of problem sexual behavior often results from challenges in attaining goals that are common to all human beings. Finally, this webinar describes a workbook for using the GLM with young women who exhibit a wide range of problem behaviors.

Learning Objectives: At the end of this training, you will be able to…

  1. Describe the Good Lives Model
  2. Identify the linkage between risk factors and approach-oriented treatment goals
  3. Apply special considerations when working with young women
