Clients arrive in treatment with a variety of needs. Untreated, these issues often contribute significantly to an individuals’ initiation into, and maintenance of, the criminal lifestyle. Within the framework of the Risk, Need, Responsivity model, CPA utilizes a wide range of assessment methods to diagnose and treat clients involved in the criminal justice system. This includes initial intake interviews, formal psychological assessments, and ongoing behavioral observations. In addition, clients are often exposed to a combination of treatment modalities and providers who work collaboratively to develop and continually re-evaluate diagnostic impressions and treatment goals. Our assessments and interventions are empirically driven in order to provide the most efficient and cost-effective services. After an assessment of criminogenic factors (e.g., criminal history, antisocial personality traits, nature/level of affiliation with antisocial individuals, substance abuse, history of (non)compliance with supervising agents and treatment providers), the client is prescribed a treatment regimen designed to manage current risk and reduce future risk. This can include a variety of treatment modalities including group therapy, individual therapy, and/or psychiatric services.
