Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning

The U.S. Department of Education conducted a meta-analysis and review of online learning studies and concluded,
"The meta-analysis found that, on average, students in online learning conditions performed modestly better than those receiving face-to-face instruction."

THEFT TALK™ Referrals


Appropriate referrals to our Anger Management Class?

Of course you can refer any person you would like. However, as a guideline, we suggest you think of Offender Solutions® for offenders who are "average", typical or first time offenders. As you well know, we are more likely to be successful with the less hardened, serious or chronic offenders. (Though we actually like working with the high risk and/or chronic offender.) We try to make all of our materials readable at the 5th grade level. If the person has a mental illness or is cognitively impaired we do not recommend a referral.


Ourcome Alternatives™ Referral Forms


Our Referral Forms are intended to be a convenience to you. You can simply hand the form to the person being referred and they will have instructions on what to do and how to do it.
Simply open or download the referral form, print and hand it to the offender.
Easy enough?

Making a referral? This is a subject we know something about. With our experience in the field of parole and probation we know that making a referral is all too often more work than is necessary. We try hard to make it easy.

Evidence Based Research

Implementing Evidence Based Practices

Evidence Based Juvenile Programs

What doesn't work? :

Edward Latessa, Ph.D. Center for Criminal Justice Research says, "Most researchers who study correctional interventions have concluded without some form of human intervention or services there is unlikely to be much effect on recidivism from punishment alone." Further, "Not a single reviewer of studies of the effects of official punishment alone (custody, mandatory arrests, increased surveillance, etc.) has found consistent evidence of reduced recidivism."

Using research and evidence based interventions is essential, not only to demonstrate the effectiveness of our programs but also, an ethical responsibility. Our position is that we have a mission critical responsibility to provide the best, evidence based anger management and theft/shoplifting services possible.

What does work?:

The research community, and virtually all of the relevant journals, overwhelming demonstrate the Outcome Alternatives™ curricula which:

a) uses education and,

b) follows a cognitive restructuring or cognitive behavior modification model, will provide statistically significant change (results).

Simply stated, Outcome Alternatives™ maintains a fundamental belief that all clients must be treated respectfully and are seeking a better life. Our approach is to help them assess their own attitudes, values and beliefs. The research indicates that the Outcome Alternatives™ cognitive model develops an awareness that results in an attitude change and subsequent pro-social beliefs and behaviors. The data also shows that these changes occur across male and female, juvenile and adult and among low, medium and high risk offenders.

Outcome Alternatives™, as an agency, has a research, criminal justice and counseling psychology background. All staff are supervised by a Masters level Counseling Psychologist. We are comprised of staff and consultants from a variety of disciplines including parole, probation, psychology, social work, counseling, corrections, and a research analyst.
