Description
Often times, the most relevant and effective policies are those that take into account the multiple factors which impact individuals, families, and communities. Whether developing programs, treatment protocol, or policy initiatives, those that seek to address the interrelatedness of the target populations’ circumstance may have an increased chance of positive impact and success. Incorporating relevant multi-discipline content into the classroom will promote students’ willingness and ability to participate in the development of this broader lens in the assessment of need, development of targeted responses, and the evaluation of those responses. This presentation will focus on the linkages between criminal justice and social work in that effort.
