Assessing Intervention Needs and Progress in Adolescents and Young Adults: The Youth Needs and Progress Scale (YNPS)

with Dr. Sue Righthand, M.A., Ph.D.

Effective interventions when youth or young adults have problematic or illegal sexual behavior require high quality assessments. Initial and subsequent risk and needs assessment are necessary for identifying appropriate intervention targets and effective service delivery. This training will review the development and implementation of an evidence-informed, treatment needs and progress scale, and provide instruction on its use.

Only 40 spots available for this high demand training!
