Outcomes

Fidelity, or how well something is done, is key to recidivism reductions. UCCI works with agencies in numerous ways to help ensure fidelity. First, we have developed a tool to evaluate the effectiveness of correctional programs—The Evidence-Based Correctional Program Checklist (CPC). We conduct CPC assessments and train staff to conduct CPC assessments on behalf of their agency. Second, we provide PROGRAM DESIGN services so they better adhere to the research surrounding what works in changing delinquent and criminal behavior. Third, we provide on-site and off-site TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE to help agencies track their outcomes. Fourth, we provide individual staff observation and COACHING. Lastly, we train peer coaches and supervisors to conduct their own staff observations and COACHING within the agency.
