    Required Attendees: SOAR 7 Staff only
    Presenters: MHS
    Description: The prediction of recidivism risk and the identification of criminogenic needs are key to evidence-based practice in correctional, legal, and behavioral health settings. The newest version of the most commonly-used and widely-researched scheme for risk/needs assessment in adult offenders is the Level of Service/Case Management Inventory (YLS/CMI 2.0). Following the Risk-Need-Responsivity Model of offender rehabilitation, the YLS/CMI 2.0 measures risk factors empirically-associated with recidivism as well as offender strengths, supervision considerations, and factors. The YLS/CMI 2.0 has been found to produce accurate and reliable assessments of recidivism risk across sexes, ethnicities, and countries.

    Trauma Responsive Care and Relational MI Part I
    Presenters: Dr. Kate Watson
    Description: Although Motivational Interviewing (MI) was born out of the substance abuse and addiction field, today MI is regarded as a set of communication skills used by professionals across many disciplines, including: healthcare, social services, financial advising, education, leadership, and victim advocacy. In very simple terms, you might think of MI as a type of conversation about behavior change, but this definition fails to capture the full range of applications to the field of victim advocacy. Client advocates speak to people in the midst of healing and growth in the aftermath of violence and trauma. Motivational Interviewing is a way of communicating with people about their options moving forward. This style of speaking is meant to be collaborative, compassionate, and evocative.

    Presenters: Jesse Teverbaugh, Cara, Chicago

The discussion is designed to create spaces for conversation around the many issues the film raises, including second chance hiring, racial equity, and building a more inclusive workforce. The ultimate goal: to call attention to the complex needs of the population Cara serves, sparking changes in corporate hiring practices, workforce development policies, and public attitudes nationwide.
