The Academy targets all of its interventions and assesses a participant’s progress against one or more of the Five Core Facilitators for Well-Being Development – an assessment framework informed by the principles of the Risk-Need-Responsivity Model, the Good Lives Model, Social Learning Theory, Stress and Coping Theory, the Main Effects Models of Social Support and Family Resilience Theory. Specifically, the Five Core Facilitators for Well-Being Development entail:
POSITIVE COPING STRATEGIES
POSITIVE SOCIAL ACTIVITIES
The Five Core Facilitators of Well-Being Development provide the guiding elements for the Concordance Re-Entry Model – the Academy’s individualized and standardized approach to re-entry services. This model goes beyond a response to dynamic risk and moves toward positive individual development for a sustainable, long-term trajectory free of the criminal justice system. Essentially, the model suggests that
IF AN INDIVIDUAL IS IMPROVING ON THE FIVE CORE FACILITATORS, then THEY ARE ON A TRAJECTORY OF SUCCESSFUL RE-ENTRY
into society, and will have a lower likelihood of reincarceration.
