2019 Reducing Recidivism & Reentry Conference – reference materials

Creating Healthy Relationships – Building Supportive Communities


About the Conference

If you work as a mental health or substance abuse professional, community program director or case manager, public defender or judge, if you work with at risk or adjudicated youth, are a probation officer, social worker, or work in another field that is concerned with reducing recidivism and strengthening reentry services — this conference is for you!

Together we can maximize the effectiveness of reentry programs and minimize barriers to employment and reintegration back into the communities. By developing collaborative case management plans and implementing programs that meet beneficiary needs, we can shift the public’s perception of formerly incarcerated individuals from a risk to an asset to our communities.
