This tool assists probation staff in identifying the risk and needs of youth, allowing for the development of case plans that respond to each individual youth’s areas of risk and need. Case plans include referrals to in-house and community-based interventions including:

  • Evidence based programs such as Aggression Replacement Training and Functional Family Therapy.
  • Referrals to community-based substance abuse treatment.
  • Referrals for community-based individual or family counseling.
