The Service Planning Instrument Re-entry (SPIn Re-entry™) is an abridged version of our SPIn™ assessment tool. SPIn Re-entry is especially suitable for measuring risk, needs and strengths in adult re-entry populations. While this shorter version of SPIn is convenient in re-entry settings where there is less available time for assessment activities, it can also be used in probation, parole, and custodial settings to assess risk of recidivism and identify needs for developing case plans.
SPIn Re-entry can help case workers develop service plans for their criminal justice clients by measuring a range of criminogenic needs that may have an impact on future criminal behavior. Included among these needs are obstacles that many individuals encounter as they adjust to community life (e.g. finding employment, accessing services, managing financial difficulties).
A key feature of SPIn Re-entry is the inclusion of strengths in the assessment protocol – an examination of the strengths, assets and supports that individuals have available to them.
SPIn Re-entry Pre-Screen version:
- Efficiently classifies justice-involved individuals according to low, moderate and high risk of future recidivism.
- Identifies cases that need more intensive levels of service and supervision.
- Based on only 19 items that are “quick” to assess.
- Provides high predictive accuracy.
- Includes a Pre-Screen strength score.
SPIn Re-entry Full Assessment:
- 39 items (including the 19 Pre-Screen items).
- Used for developing case plans.
- Focuses on dynamic components.
- Profiles both criminogenic needs and strengths.
After producing a risk and strength profile, the SPIn Re-entry software helps guide users through case plan development. It can also be used to track the progress of the case plan over time using re-assessments and updated information on completion of goals and action steps. Using our CaseWorks™ software, case managers have an intuitive and effective method for interpreting assessment results and ensuring that case plans match the needs and strength profiles of their clients.
