Addressing Responsivity Issues for American Indian/Alaska Native Individuals on Community Supervision

Addressing Responsivity Issues for American Indian/Alaska Native Individuals on Community Supervision is proudly presented to you by CEQ American Probation and Parole Association. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

(Recorded Webinar: Original Live Broadcast Date/Time: Thursday, November 19, 2015 | 3:00 – 4:30 pm ET)


This webinar was presented with funding from the Bureau of Justice Assistance under Cooperative Agreement 2012-IP-BX-K001.


The responsivity principle suggests that an individual's characteristics affect how they respond to treatment and interventions. Characteristics such as learning style, personality, culture, gender, education level, etc. should play an important part in choosing which services and interventions a justice-involved individual is assigned to. In this era where practitioners are encouraged to incorporate strategies and practices that are “evidence-based,” we should be cautious not to discount indigenous, tribal or culture-based interventions that could work more effectively with AI/AN populations, even though they have not been evaluated and labeled as “evidence-based.”


Following this webinar, participants will be able to:



  • Summarize what the research literature says we should be doing with American Indian/Alaska Native individuals on community supervision caseloads;

  • Describe a new standard of measuring the effectiveness of programs (deemed “Practice-Based Evidence”);

  • Explain the results of a survey regarding general and specific responsivity factors identified by PPOs as unique to American Indian/Alaska Native individuals on community supervision; and

  • Provide recommendations for administrators, policy makers, and practitioners to ensure responsivity factors unique to American Indian/Alaska Natives are incorporated into supervision plans to improve their outcomes.
