Thanks Evan. When dealing with moderate and high risk individuals, there is a strong likelihood that many of them will need trauma-informed services. For these and other gender-specific programming ideas, we would recommend contacting the National Resource Center for Justice Involved Women (NRCJIW). They have an “Ask NRCJIW” link on their website: http//cjinvolvedwomen.org. This is the go-to resource for questions about women in the justice system. If you can post on the EBP Peer-to-Peer Forum what you learn so that others can benefit, it would be greatly appreciated.
We would be glad to respond. Can you clarify who you serve in your agency? The programming would depend on a number of factors: adult versus juvenile; special needs; correctional or non-correctional; low or high risk individuals; those with a mental health condition, etc.
