The Residential Positive Achievement Change Tool (R-PACT) is an assessment instrument modified from the Positive Achievement Change Tool (PACT.) It was created specifically for residential programs and can be used as an independent instrument or can be pre-populated with responses from the PACT. Its purpose is to identify the youth’s highest scoring criminogenic needs, guide the development of intervention strategies and assist with determining a youth’s progress in residential programs.
SRNA - The Static Risk and Needs Assessment
Developed by the Washington State Institute for Public Policy, the Static Risk Assessment is based on offender demographics and criminal history while the Needs Assessment allows for greater information gathering to be used in the identification of top criminogenic needs for case planning purposes.
The advantages of the SRNA are:
Increased predictive accuracy;
Prediction of three types of high risk offenders: drug, property, and violent;
Decreased time to complete the assessment; and
Accurate recording of criminal history.
CPM - The Case Planning Module
The Case Planning Module creates the bridge between needs assessment tools, such as the PACT family, and postive change in an offender's life. Effective case planning allows for assessment data, goals, and action steps to be easily entered and managed on an ongoing basis. Offender progress can be managed and tracked through the stages of change required for effective client interventions. Data can be captured and easily printed in a variety of formats for use by clients, families, officers, practitioners, and court officials.
View - The Advanced Data Analytics Engine
View provides agencies with advanced reporting capabilities for their assessment management system. The platform provides for direct, ad-hoc query access to stored assessment and Case Plan Module (CPM) data.
MI - Motivational Interviewing Training
Motivational interviewing is a directive, client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change by helping clients to explore and resolve ambivalence. Compared with nondirective counselling, it is more focused and goal-directed. The examination and resolution of ambivalence is its central purpose, and the counselor is intentionally directive in pursuing this goal. Trainees will be taught the foundation of this effective technique.
