Stough The York County Target 25 program is the early identification, placement, and pretrial supervision of second and subsequent offense DUI offenders. Target 25 uses 24/7 concepts, and is a perfect complement to DUI treatment courts. The program is a CJAB initiative with partnerships between the District Attorney s Office, the Court of Common Pleas, the minor judiciary, local law enforcement, the Sheriff s Department, the Adult Probation Department, the Clerk of Courts and the local defense bar. The program emphasizes sobriety and rewards voluntary early treatment, enabling early identification and placement in the county s DUI court program and other diversionary sentencing programs. As a result of early identification and treatment involvement, outcomes have improved, the public is protected and cases move more efficiently through the Criminal Justice System resulting in significant cost savings. In 2014, the Target 25 program was awarded the prestigious Peter K. O Rourke Special Achievement Award from the Governor s Highway Safety Association for outstanding highway safety accomplishments. How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses-Divided into Part I & II Presenters: Ms. Jennifer Lopez-Cerrato and Ms. Angela Linden, LCSW The reverberating effects of traumatic experiences can challenge a person s capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers to accessing services, often resulting in an increased risk of coming into contact with the criminal justice system. This session is an opportunity for courts, police, probation, parole and corrections to learn about the importance of a trauma-informed approach in the criminal justice system and to begin to apply traumainformed responses in their work. Stress, Trauma and PTSD Presenter: Carl Dawson, M.S., M.A.C. This session is designed for professionals working with individuals diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorders in conjunction with co-occurring substance use. This presentation will explore current research, theoretical and clinical information regarding the impact and recovery issues surrounding substance use and trauma. Particular emphasis will be placed upon reviewing current biological findings in reference to the trauma victim. The conclusion of the presentation will focus on specific treatment intervention techniques found most effective with this clinical population. 3

7 Wednesday, March 25, 2015 Session Descriptions - Continued Results of Cross System Mappings from Across the Commonwealth Presenters: Patty Griffin, Ph.D., Katy Winckworth-Prejsnar MPH, and Mr. Jim Hudack The Center of Excellence (CoE) will provide workshop summarizing and integrating information obtained from the nearly 40 Cross-System Mapping (CSM) workshops that have been provided to Pennsylvania counties since Each CSM is summarized in a detailed final report that identifies gaps, opportunities, and decisions made by the county in light of their interest in diversion, their selection of one or more intercepts, and their particular practices. To date, however, this information has not been aggregated. By reviewing all final reports from mapped counties, this presentation will offer an overview of commonly-encountered challenges and effective responses. It will also summarize outcome data obtained following each CSM. It should be useful both for counties considering CSM and post-csm counties in the implementation phase of their diversion plan. 3:00 p.m. 4:30 p.m. Keystone Crisis Intervention Team Presenter: Ms. Angela Keen Do you understand the impact of trauma and how it affects your workplace and community? Is your organization prepared with the necessary skills to cope with community crisis? Do you know where to turn for help and how to respond? In this session, you will learn about the impact of trauma on organizations and about the statewide crisis response team, Keystone Crisis Intervention Team (KCIT). You will be provided with information about KCIT services and how and when KCIT responds to communities in crisis. KCIT is a grant funded project through PA Commission on Crime and Delinquency and was started in the late 1990 s to provide free crisis services to victims of crime in the Commonwealth. How Being Trauma-Informed Improves Criminal Justice System Responses-Divided into Part I & II Presenters: Ms. Jennifer Lopez-Cerrato and Ms. Angela Linden The reverberating effects of traumatic experiences can challenge a person s capacity for recovery and pose significant barriers to accessing services, often resulting in an increased risk of coming into contact with the criminal justice system. This session is an opportunity for courts, police, probation, parole and corrections to learn about the importance of a trauma-informed approach in the criminal justice system and to begin to apply trauma-informed responses in their work. Building Housing Opportunities Facilitator: Mr. James Turner Panelists: Honorable Preston Boop, Mr. Bruce Quigley, Mr. Rich Kisner, Ms. Kelly Evans, and Ms. Barbara Warunek. Until very recently, Criminal Justice Advisory Boards (CJABs) and Housing Authorities had no connection to one another. But thanks to some bold leadership at the state and local level, brave innovators who refuse to accept stereotypes, the walls are coming down. This session will bring meaningful discussion on second chances through housing for the justice-involved population. This interactive session will highlight successful county partnerships and state strategies for stakeholders to discuss the challenges that currently exist and opportunities to enhance community safety. Pennsylvania Commission on Sentencing- Risk Assessment Tool Presenters: Cynthia Kempinen, Ph.D., Barry Ruback, Ph.D., and Leigh Tinik Act 95 of 2010 required the Commission on Sentencing to develop a risk assessment tool for use by courts at sentencing. To address this mandate, the Commission has undertaken a research project to identify factors that predict recidivism. An initial risk assessment tool was developed for Level 3 and 4 offenders of the sentencing guidelines [mid-level seriousness]. The Commission is currently finishing a follow-up project that is developing a risk tool for all offenders. This session will provide information on the background of the project, the preliminary risk assessment tool, and the implementation of the risk tool. 4

11 Thursday, March 26, 2015 Session Descriptions - Continued 2:10 p.m. - 2:40 p.m. Leveraging Health Care Reform to Benefit the Criminal Justice System Presenter: Maureen Barden, Esq. Health care reform, especially the Medicaid expansion which went into effect on January 1, 2015, has great potential to benefit county and state criminal justice systems. Counties can reduce their jail populations by using Medicaid funds to divert pretrial detainees into treatment; sentenced individuals can be linked to care upon release, improving their chances of a successful reentry. Criminal justice stakeholders can lead the way in taking advantage of the new health care landscape to improve outcomes and reduce costs. 2:40 p.m. 4:00 p.m. Reentry It s Everybody s Business Facilitator: Ms. Charla Plaines Presenters: Melanie Snyder, OWDS, GCDF and Ms. Colleen Phillips This Plenary session will explore how Reentry Coalitions move from creating a plan, to service delivery, to identifying and collaboratively addressing systemic issues. During the session, you will hear from experts on reentry planning; implementing reentry focused projects; and how to make policy changes to help reduce barriers and improve outcomes for returning citizens. This session will include the following topics and panelists: NeuroResource Facilitation for Ex-Offenders with Brain Injury: Project Findings and Outcomes Data Panelists: Ms. Monica Vaccaro, and Drew Nagele, Psy.D. The Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania, through Byrne Justice Assistance Grant from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency, is conducting a demonstration project at SCI-Graterford to identify individuals with cognitive impairment due to brain injury who are nearing release, and connect them with specialized supports in the community to maximize a successful reentry. This session will summarize results of screening and neurocognitive testing performed with individuals in the project, provide an in-depth description of the model of NeuroResource Facilitation pre- and postrelease, and present outcome data for those project participants living in the community. Case examples to illustrate the components of this innovative reentry initiative will be provided. Chester County Reentry Panelist: Mr. William D. Burrell and Mr. Christopher Murphy Effective reentry initiatives require strong and effective collaboration across agencies and organizations. No one agency owns reentry and no one agency can implement it. It is critical to build an effective collaboration of key stakeholders and constituents to develop consensus on, and then design and implement the many elements of effective reentry. The recently completed Strategic Plan for Reentry in Chester County provides an excellent example of the development and operation of a collaborative partnership for reentry. Employment Opportunity & Training Center of Northeastern Pennsylvania (EOTC) Panelist: Sharon McCrone, Ph.D. EOTC Executive Director Sharon McCrone will discuss the agency s long time collaborative history with the Lackawanna County CJAB and one of EOTC s most recent projects, the Women in Transition Program. Through its current strategic plan, Lackawanna County CJAB identified significant gaps in reentry services, particularly for women. Subsequently, two PCCD funded Women in Transition projects beginning in 2012, have directly addressed those gaps through assessment, education/skill enhancement, case management and other support services. 8
