Behaviour Intervention Training (2 Days) – Changing Habits and Reaching Targets (CHART)

13 December 2017 @ 9:00 am - 14 December 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Event Navigation

Target Audience: CHART is based on the guiding principle that reducing a young person’s offending behaviour is the prime focus of youth justice intervention. It is designed to support consistent and improved interventions to reduce the risk of reoffending and as such, CHART training specficially targets anyone who works directly with young people at risk of long-term involvement in the criminial justice system.

About the course and CHART program: Through this course participants will be trained to use the CHART program in their everyday work.

CHART is an offending-behaviour change program designed to work with the needs of offending youth justice clients. The program is designed to help young people to:

  • understand the values and beliefs that underpin their offending behaviour
  • re-examine their motivation
  • re-evaluate the potential consequences of their actions
  • develop problem solving and consequential thinking skills
  • develop skills to find new directions.

CHART is not just a program but is also a way of working. The program is evidence-based and informed by research on effective correctional programming. Research suggests that offending-focused programs work best when they involve action, participation, skills training and discussion linked to these activities and CHART includes all of these elements in every session.

CHART has five aims:

  • to provide an evidence-based practical resource for working one-to-one with young people
  • to provide a program that is directly relevant to key criminogenic needs and is designed for sequential, structured, offending-focused, one-to-one work
  • to use a problem-solving framework of assessment, objective setting, action (learning and practice) and evaluation as the key change process.
  • to provide a user-friendly program that recognises young people’s rights and responsibilities, and which can be used in an anti-discriminatory way.
  • to be a portable resource for use with young people when in the community and in custody.
