01/29 Risk Factors - Common Sense - Retrospective approach - Prospective approach Statistical Prediction > Clinical Prediction THE EVOLUTION OF CLASSIFICATION (risk need) - Pre- “Gut feeling” - First generation - Second generation(first Actuarial Tool)- parole board & psychologist; 1928 “Burgess Scale” (criminal type, social type) - Third generation-dynamic+ static Developed based on theoretical and empirical factors identified in studies of criminal behavior. Criminal History: What you did, conviction, prior supervision, onset age - Fourth generation- dynamic+ static+ case planning+ some responsivity WHAT ARE THE RISK FACTORS RELATED TO CRIMINAL CONDUCT Antisocial attitudes/associates (0.22)- Temperament/misconduct/personality (0.2) Personal distress/ family structure (0.07)- Lower social class (0.05) Violence Recidivism: criminal history, anti-social personality, attitudes. General & Violent Recidivism: Psychopathy MAJOR RISK/NEED 1. Anti-social/pro-criminal attitudes, values, beliefs and cognitive-emotional states 2. Antisocial Peers: Pro-criminal associates and isolation from anti-criminal others 3. Temperament/anti-personality: weak socialization, impulsivity, adventurous, restless aggressive, egocentrism, below average verbal intelligence, a task for risk 4. A History of Antisocial Behavior (static): from a young age, a variety of settings, involve a number of variety acts. 5. Family factors that include criminality and psychological problems (static): low levels of affection, caring and cohesiveness; poor parental supervision and discipline practices. 6. Low level of personal educational, vocational or financial: 7. Low level of prosocial leisure activities: allow for interaction with antisocial peers, idle time 8. Substance Abuse: engage with antisocial others, impact social skills. *PAROLE VIOLATER FACTPORS: - hang around with individuals with criminal background - Poor management of stress was a primary contributing factor to relapse. PRINCIPLE OF CLASSIFICATION: - Risk (who): risk to reoffending and not the seriousness of the offense 1. Targeting Higher Risk Offenders: even with EBP there will be failures (60%). Can reduce failure rate 40% if it is a well designed EBP. 2. Provide intensive interventions to higher risk offenders: What does more “intensive” means? the longer in treatment the great the effects; However, effects tend to diminish if the treatment goes too long. 3. Intensive treatment to lower risk offenders can increase recidivism: learn anti social behavior from high risk; Disrupts pro-social networks; Increased reporting/surveillance leads to more violations/revocations. 4. Research support the RISK principle. Can’t have “one size” fits all programs. - Need (what to target): By assessing and targeting criminogenic needs for change, agencies can reduce the probability of recidivism - Responsivity (how) - Professional Discretion
