Treating severe behavioral problems in corrections is a critical job for correctional mental health professionals -- and one of the most daunting. Evidence-based treatment programs designed specifically for a correctional population are lacking. In this session, the presenter will review the use of a group milieu treatment for impulse control and high-risk behaviors within a correctional setting; detail a study investigating its effectiveness; and discuss strategies for establishing outcome-based studies in corrections.
- Describe the use of skills-focused treatment for behavioral and emotional dysregulation disorders
- Explain the need for evidence-based research in corrections
- Identify strategies for incorporating outcomes-based research into clinical practice
