  • Shared Decision-Making With People Who Are Justice-Involved and Have A Serious Mental Illness

    Contains 2 Component(s)

    Learn how shared decision making can support offenders with mental illness in leading meaningful, crime-free lifestyles with a live webinar on May 26, 2016.

    People with serious mental illness (SMI) are overrepresented in our nation's criminal justice system. Recent approaches to reduce justice involvement of individuals with mental illness focus either on alleviating symptoms of mental illness or reducing criminogenic needs (i.e., criminal risk factors such as antisocial peers or cognitions). However, people with mental illnesses rarely engage in criminal behaviors simply due to untreated symptoms or other clinical factors and low engagement in risk reduction programs is common and associated with recidivism.

    A combination of the risk-reduction approach and methods that promote engagement in services that provide alternatives to criminal behaviors may be more suited to the sub-population of offenders who have SMI. Recovery-oriented mental health services, such as Strengths Model Case Management (SMCM), take a client-centered approach that involves choice and shared decision-making to engage people in treatment. Integrating these methods into services targeted to offenders with a mental illness might increase the likelihood that people will engage in crime reduction programs and services. Incorporating recovery-oriented services into community services for justice-involved individuals with SMI may therefore be more effective at reducing recidivism than risk-reduction efforts alone. This combination of risk-reduction and client-centered, recovery-oriented approaches may better support offenders with mental illness in leading meaningful, crime-free lifestyles.

    In this on-demand webinar, participants will learn:

    • the benefits of SMCM (including shared decision making) as well as its limitations for reducing the criminal involvement of people with SMI
    • the predominant risk reduction approach in criminal justice rehabilitation and its limitations
    • how elements of SMCM (e.g., shared decision making) and risk reduction can be combined to increase engagement in services and programs that can reduce the criminal behavior of people with SMI who are justice-involved
    • some potential challenges to employing this hybrid approach (including shared decision-making) with adults who are justice-involved and have an SMI in mental health and correctional settings in the community
    Who should participate?

    Individuals responsible for assisting people with SMI to achieve important life goals and to remain crime-free in the community, including professionals in community mental health center and community corrections settings

    This webinar is sponsored by CSWE in partnership with the University of Kansas School of Social Welfare and the Indiana University School of Social Work.

    Overview

    The CSWE Council on Women and the Role and Status of Women has developed the following modules to help social work educators incorporate feminism in the classroom. Teaching feminism requires a critical examination of the concept of feminist practice, with attention to oppression, power, and privilege and the effects of gender as it intersects with race/ethnicity, sexuality, and class. From a practice perspective feminist approaches provide the values, knowledge, and skills social workers regularly use to elevate suffering and promote social justice. All of the modules are are listed under “Handouts" tab above and their corresponding videos are listed on the right side of this page.

    • Feminism Module 1: Use of Feminism in the Classroom
    • Feminism Module 2: Feminist Theories
    • Feminism Module 3: Types of Feminism, including Black Feminism and Feminism in Latin America and Caribbean
    • Feminism Module 4: Use of Feminism in Research
