In 2015, Coconino County Adult Probation started a special unit called Advanced Supervision Strategies and EPICS II Team (ASSET). This project incorporated cutting edge evidence-based practices to supervise high-risk and medium-high risk clients. Using swift and certain consequences as a platform, treatment dosage and cognitive programming rounded out this endeavor at promoting behavior change in difficult clients being supervised on Standard and Intensive Probation Supervision. Statistics from the first year are in, and they are promising! Client interactions (field, office, and arrests), consequences, treatment, and cognitive work will be discussed. Come to this session and learn how probation officers “managed” all their assets: judges, attorneys, and clients!
• Show how to develop honest relationships with clients
• Teach supervision strategies appropriate for use with high-risk clients
• Describe how to include judges and attorneys in process discussions and practices
