Interventions are most effective when they focus specifically on a person’s criminogenic needs. The challenge is that actuarial assessment tools often identify a cluster of dynamic risk factors but generally do not identify the “driver”: the criminogenic need that is most likely driving a person’s harmful behavior. The Driver Workbook was developed to fill the gap.
Using an interactive process, staff and clients explore patterns that emerge from a person’s descriptions of times when they experienced trouble in the past—at home, at school, at work, and/or with the law. The substantive dialogue that results from exploring these patterns leads to important discoveries about the driver and needed skills that might otherwise take much longer to evidence themselves. The process of working through the Driver Workbook collaboratively helps build understanding and rapport and assists staff and clients in prioritizing case plan goals.
