Are assessments based on the Risk-Need-Responsivity framework equally effective for male and female youth?

Abstract:

Research supports rehabilitative programming addressing youths’ risk to reoffend, criminogenic needs and responsivity factors. However, the RNR framework takes a ‘gender neutral’ approach that opponents assert overlooks the psychological, emotional, and health needs of girls. Preliminary analyses of 122 young offenders indicate that girls have significantly higher risk and need in education/employment, family, leisure time, and antisocial attitudes, and are more likely to receive a mental health diagnosis than male youth. Data are being coded to determine whether probation case managers are able to address RNR factors equally well for male and female clients in terms of arranging services, and whether recidivism is predicted equally well for males and females by the extent to which their individually-identified RNR factors are addressed through intervention. Implications for theory and practice are discussed.
