The Evolution of Community Supervision Practice: The Transformation from Case Manager to Change Agent

Volume 76 Number 2
September 2012

The authors review what works in offender rehabilitation and community supervision, reflect on the evolution of the work of community supervision officers from "case manager" to "change agent," and describe two key interrelated challenges critical to this transformation: understanding the fundamentals of cognitive-behavioral interventions and clinically translating risk/need instrument assessment into an intervention plan.
