The Prospective Risk Evaluation for Delinquency in CT (PrediCT) is a scripted, actuarial, criminal risk assessment that consists of 44 items within 10 subscales across 6 domains (Academic Disengagement, Family Distress, Antisociality [Impulsive/Oppositional, Antisocial Peers, Callousness, and Anger and Aggression], Criminal History [Court involvement and Chronic Non Compliance], Mental Health and Substance Use). The PrediCT includes items that tie directly to criminal risk as well as those that aid in case planning, and places clients in one of 5 tiers that indicate and outline risk domains, supervision guidelines and effects.
In this class, participants will learn the basics of Juvenile Criminal Risk behavior and the ways we measure it through the PrediCT.
Course Learning Objectives:
To familiarize juvenile contracted providers with the PrediCT and the ways it reflects a new approach to risk classification, treatment matching and case collaboration.
