Case Management Intervention Services (80 hours)
The intervention services preservice curriculum provides an overview of juvenile justice case management and describes the role of the probation officer/intervention services counselor in Florida's juvenile justice system. This training emphasizes both the probation officer's role in the assessment process -- how probation officers gather, organize and analyze information about youth and their surroundings in order to develop appropriate and individualized treatment strategies -- and the supervision process. It addresses both the philosophical underpinnings of the Balanced Approach to delinquency case management and the procedural "nuts and bolts" of the Intervention Services Policy Manual. It utilizes specific policy and procedural text, lectures, tours, discussions, skills practice, and demonstrations based on case studies to ensure that probation officers are knowledgeable of policies and procedures governing their area of responsibility. The training does not provide site-specific information or detailed practice in professional techniques.
