The Family Support Approach for Community Supervision

Green Clock Hours: 2.50

Most of us are where we are today because of support we received from someone at some point in our lives. Who was it for you? Was it a parent, a grandparent, a teacher, a friend, a faith-based leader, or a combination of people? Often, family and social networks are among the most powerful influences on us. Our parents, grandparents, siblings, and friends tend to have the most influence on who we are or become. The same is true for individuals on supervision. Families and social networks can be a strong force, motivator, and resource for supervisees, and it is important to learn more about how you can leverage these networks to benefit both the individual on supervision and you as an officer. This course is intended for front line staff and supervisors in community corrections agencies. This course will provide you with some background information on the foundation and core concepts of the Family Support Approach for Community Supervision. It also will introduce you to the primary tools and techniques of the approach and offer you an opportunity to apply what you learn through quiz questions, scenarios, and interactive exercises.
