1 ICPA 2015 Family Violence Programme Package for Low to Moderate Risk Male Offenders Ben Clark, Department of Corrections New Zealand

2 Overview New Zealand and Department of Corrections context Offender rehabilitation research Family violence programme Next steps.

3 Family violence affects many New Zealanders Family violence 1 is a significant social issue in New Zealand. 2 For instance: in the years 2009 to 2012, 47 per cent of all homicide and related offences in New Zealand were family violence and family violence related deaths in 2014, there were 101,981 family violence investigations by Police family violence causes immediate and ongoing harm to individuals, families, whānau, with strong association with poor outcomes Likely underestimated: study in 2003 showed around half the 956 women in the sample who had experienced physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner did not seek any help from formal services.

4 NZ s Offender Population and family violence 9,100 prisoners; 16,000 p.a. 17,000 community sentences; 40,000 p.a. In 2011/12, 8147 offenders began a Corrections managed sentenced for a family violence offence (18% of total sentences) of the 6597 with prior convictions, 3706 (56.2%) had one or more prior family violence-related convictions and sentences 1395 of the 8147 (16.6%) went on to commit a further family violence offence within the next 12 months, 2109 (25.1%) by 24 months, and 2574 (30.6%) by 36 months.

5 Offender Rehabilitation Research General offender population research outcome studies Programmes based upon the principles of Risk, Needs and Responsivity (RNR) can effectively reduce reoffending All NZ Corrections internal rehabilitation services based on RNR model In 2012 Psychological Services undertook research into stopping family violence (FV) programmes.

6 Success of FV programmes overseas Few published studies At best these studies have reported small reductions in reoffending At worst no reductions in reoffending or increases in the probability of reoffending ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT

7 Family Violence Approaches Two general approaches in New Zealand 1. Duluth model Feminist perspective based upon a patriarchal ideology Mainly educational 2. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or a combination of the two

8 New Zealand: Sample of FV offenders (N=788) Maori were over represented Offenders have varying levels of risk of harm to others Most offenders aged years but 10% under 21 years 10% are Female Most had prior convictions for violence Range of other offences, including alcohol and drugs.

9 Analysis of NZ programmes - Findings Offenders of all risks attending same programmes Criminogenic needs not necessarily targeted Programmes not strictly therapeutic Unclear success measures/value for money Lack of alignment with other Sector delivery. Family Violence Project

10 What We Want Programmes to be more effective at reducing re-offending (historically programmes delivered lower impact on recidivism than in-house delivery of similar programmes) 65% completes minimum Criminogenic needs met Risk, Needs & Responsivity Principles followed More alignment across social and criminal justice sectors More integrated response to victims and perpetrators. FUTURE STATE

11 Tiered Approach for FV Referrals Intensity of programme needs to match the level of offender risk: High risk offenders to work with Departmental psychologists Moderate risk offenders to be referred to Departmental Medium Intensity Rehabilitative Programmes All low to low-moderate risk offenders to continue to be referred to community provider programmes

12 Engagement to support programme design Regional provider briefings District focus groups Expert Advisory Group Provider representation Ministry of Justice NZ Police Ministry of Women s Affairs

13 The New Programme Low moderate risk offenders Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)/ social learning Cultural component woven through the programme Entry assessment to identify Risk, Needs & Responsivity 60 hours 20 sessions plus assessment and exit Closed or Rolling Format (can enter at every fourth session) Weekly, twice weekly or four times a week delivery Exit planning.

14 The Programme Managing Emotions Defining emotions and the role of emotions in violence/abuse Identifying and managing problem emotions Distress tolerance skills Responding to other peoples emotions Managing Alcohol and Drugs Substance use and links with family violence Peer pressure Questioning thinking that facilitates substance use Preventing relapse into substance abuse

15 The Programme Relationship Skills Mana Wahine/ Tane/ Tamariki Effective and safe communication skills Impact of violence/abuse on others Sexual respect Whanau Accountability session Presenting safety plan

16 Where have we got to New programme approved December 2014 Piloted during 2015 in custody and the community Recently completed tender for national roll out Training and implementation in 2016, including monitoring Cross-Government programme of work to better align family violence sector, including stopping violence programmes.

17 Considerations Workforce capability to deliver and funders role in capability building Pricing agreement across funders Balance between out-sourced and in-house delivery and implications for FV sector Tailored, prescribed suite of programmes, a framework, or contract for outcomes only Long-term strategy for FV interventions.

19 Out of gate reintegration Support BEN CLARK, DIRECTOR PROGRAMMES AND INTERVENTIONS Department of Corrections New Zealand

20 Why Out of Gate? Short serving/remand prisoners often need assistance to resettle in the community. Many are high risk, have had limited rehabilitation and tend to cycle in and out of custody on short sentences.

21 What is out of gate? Navigation-style reintegration support Optional for eligible prisoners Targets short-serving prisoners and some remandees Participants must have at least one reintegrative need Available in prisons nationwide since late Over 4700 referrals since then 25% family violence offenders.

22 Two Levels of service Standard service Core level of support Med to high risk offenders Suitable for offenders with high reintegrative needs Makes up about 75% of services Intensive service For younger prisoners with complex and challenging needs. higher level of support and mentoring than standard service. Navigator may work with the offender for longer. Offenders must be serving a sentence of six months or less, AND be under 20 OR aged 20 to 24 and have served at least one previous term of imprisonment.

23 Contracting for outcomes The Out of Gate contract is seen as a good model for other government contracts (NZ Productivity Commission, 2015) Per offender service fee is split 15% assessment, 70% service delivery and 15% for reducing reoffending outcome (offender conviction free 12 months post release) Providers report monthly on achievement of outcomes for each offender in each reintegration area (e.g. accommodation, employment etc.) Open and transparent reporting so providers can easily compare and contrast results.

24 Working with Offenders families Providers recently submitted proposals to try new ways of working with offenders families. Services typically involved supporting families to prepare for the offender s release and put in place safety plans in relation to children and access services (particularly housing).

25 Contribution to reducing reoffending Excellent first result in Departmental Rehabilitative Quotient (RQ) analysis 6.2 means that the rate of re-imprisonment for people who completed OOG was 6.2 percentage points lower than those who did not. (For example if 36.2% of the matched group were reimprisoned after 12 months then the rate of the OOG group would have been 30%) The effect size in terms of rate of reconviction within 12 months of release was 5.2 percentage points 1% reduction is the break-even point in terms of cost-benefit.
