Participants gain an understanding of the importance and relevance of the Principles of Effective Intervention (PEI) – risk, need, responsivity, and fidelity – to their work in criminal and juvenile justice. Our PEI training is a pre-requisite to the majority of our other trainings, and is often delivered in combination with other individual trainings.
- Rehabilitation programs and services are most effective when they are implemented and operated according to the Principles of Effective Intervention (PEI): risk, need, responsivity, and fidelity.
- Decades of research have demonstrated that when these principles are adhered to, recidivism is reduced and the likelihood for positive behavioral change is increased.
- During this training, participants will gain an understanding of the importance of adherence to these principles at all stages of the criminal justice process through interactive discussion, activities, and skills.
