The prediction of recidivism risk and the identification of criminogenic needs are key to evidence-based practice in correctional, legal, and behavioral health settings serving young offenders. One of the most commonly-used and widely-researched instrument for risk/needs assessment in young offenders is the Youth Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (YLS/CMI). Following the Risk-Need-Responsivity Model of offender rehabilitation, the YLS/CMI identifies risks and strengths of young offenders and assists in the development of an evidence-based case management plan. Presented by one of only 17 Master Trainers in the world, this workshop will train you in the use of the YLS/CMI while earning 16 hours of valuable Continuing Education Credit.
The development of the YLS/CMI will be discussed, item-by-item instructions will be given on how to reliably score the measure and interpret its findings, a review of the peer-reviewed research on the YLS/CMI will be provided, and guidance will be put forth on how to apply YLS/CMI reporting conventions. Case studies will be employed to allow you to practice using the tool’s coding manual and to learn to avoid common administration errors. Attendees should have access to an YLS/CMI manual and coding sheet purchasable through the instrument’s publisher, Multi-Health Systems. For details, visit: http://www.mhs.com/
