Developing Case Plans for Juveniles on Community Supervision

Green Clock Hours: 2.00

Many juvenile justice agencies are moving away from a compliance-focused supervision strategy (e.g., did the youth fulfill the conditions of supervision) to a more targeted supervision strategy. There is also a movement toward incorporating a more family engaged case planning approach, which recognizes the importance of involving family members or other supportive adults into the case planning process for youth involved in the juvenile justice system. In a targeted supervision strategy, the focus is on helping youth create long-term change. Ultimately, this helps promote long-term public safety, as opposed to short-term public safety and compliance with court-ordered conditions. To promote behavioral change of youth on community supervision, you cannot approach the supervision of each youth from a one-size-fits-all approach. Targeted interventions must be driven by a youth’s unique risk, needs, and responsivity factors. Utilizing a validated risk and needs assessment instrument is essential to identifying factors that an officer or caseworker can address with a youth while utilizing an individualized case plan. This course will provide community supervision officers working in juvenile community corrections agencies with instruction on how to develop an initial individualized case plan (sometimes referred to as supervision plans or change plans) with a youth when they are first placed on supervision.
