EPICS REFRESHER FOR JUVENILE COUNSELORS - November 8, 2017

This course is designed for juvenile justice professionals who initially attended a full 3-Day EPICS training, but have since not been able to complete the coaching and coding components of that training OR have not been able to practice any of the skills or EPICS structure since that training OR anyone who just needs some refreshing on the materials.

The content of the EPICS Refresher Course will review with juvenile counselors, probation, and parole officers some of the key principles of effective intervention and how to apply these principles to community supervision practices. Participants will also review the overall EPICS competencies and EPICS interventions in order to target youth antisocial thinking, challenge antisocial thinking, replace antisocial thinking, identify risky situations/people/places, and learn prosocial skills. Review of how to utilize EPICS to target the criminogenic needs of medium and high risk offenders and entering JJIS EPICS notes will also be reviewed. The EPICS model of a structured approach to the officer’s interactions with their clients will be reviewed.
