Officers’ focus on criminogenic needs in specialty mental health probation meetings

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Many probation agencies have implemented specialty mental health caseloads to reduce recidivism for probationers with mental disorder (PMDs), and mental health appears to be a primary focus of these caseloads. Because clinical factors weakly predict recidivism, officers may fail to reduce recidivism if they focus on offenders’ mental health to the exclusion of criminogenic needs (e.g., antisocial pattern). This study examined meetings between PMDs and their probation officers in a specialty mental health agency and determined that officers discussed PMDs’ criminogenic about as often as their mental health issues, and were not more likely to discuss these needs when a recent violation was being discussed.
