Now Available: Parenting Workbooks!

Two parenting workbooks are now available as a result of an 18-month project spearheaded by the Pennsylvania Council of Chief Juvenile Probation Officers and the Juvenile Court Judges’ Commission, with technical assistance from The Carey Group. These workbooks are designed to help probation officers work with caregivers whose loved ones are involved in the juvenile justice system.

Looking Back at 2017

As we look back at 2017, The Carey Group and Carey Group Publishing are proud to have been part of the enormous changes happening in criminal and juvenile justice agencies across the country. We have supported agencies in California, Minnesota, and Ohio in developing strategic plans and protocols that aim to improve outcomes for justice-involved individuals.

Structured Worksheets Yield Positive Results

According to a recent study conducted by the research unit of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (NCDPS), the use of structured worksheets, such as Carey Guide tools, results in lower recidivism rates, fewer violations, increased offender engagement, and other positive outcomes.

A Sneak Peek at TOD

A big thank you to everyone who dropped by The Carey Group’s booth at the APPA Summer Institute in New York City. We’re thrilled that you had a chance to meet TOD!

TOD, which stands for Tools on Devices, is our new interactive platform that allows justice-involved individuals to complete fillable tools, such as Carey Guide tools, Brief Intervention ToolS (BITS), and the Driver Workbook, on laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Then, once assignments are completed, they are electronically submitted to the assigned corrections professional.

Welcome Matt Moore!

Please join us in welcoming Matt Moore full time to The Carey Group and Carey Group Publishing. Matt became a part-time trainer for The Carey Group in 2015. Now, in addition to training corrections professionals across the country, he is taking on a number of other responsibilities, including revising and creating new training curricula and developing innovative risk reduction products.

All of us will greatly benefit from Matt’s more than 26 years in public and private corrections. Welcome aboard, Matt!

We’re Back at the APPA Summer Institute!

The Carey Group and Carey Group Publishing are proud to announce that we are once again corporate members of, and exhibitors at, APPA’s Summer Institute—this time at the New York Marriott Marquis, from August 27 to August 29, 2017.

We’re excited to talk with you about our trainings and risk reduction resources and, especially, to introduce you to our new, TOP SECRET (for now) offering, TOD.
