Effective Practices in Community Supervision (EPICS)
The EPICS model combines foundational correctional intervention research coupled with recent findings in community supervision. Using this model, officers follow a structured approach to client sessions to apply the principles of effective intervention and core correctional practices specifically to community supervision practices.
A key component of using the EPICS model during a supervision session is creating the opportunity to teach or review an intervention. When a staff and a person under supervision have a collaborative relationship, the opportunity can be much more impactful in modeling and shaping healthy behavior. The video clip below offers an intervention example where the staff and person work together with a real life situation to practice choosing healthy behaviors that lead to long-term change.
