Abstracts and Presentations

This presentation will describe the treatment program, the partnership between two government ministries and a regional health authority that govern the Dedicated Substance Abuse Treatment Unit (DSATU), and present evaluation research completed to determine effectiveness.  The DSATU is a specialized unit at the Regina Correctional Centre (RCC) that provides comprehensive in-patient addiction treatment to male sentenced offenders.  The mandate of the DSATU is to reduce substance-related criminogenic behavior through the provision of an intensive, dedicated treatment program within the RCC for male inmates with significant substance abuse issues.  The objectives of the evaluation were to determine if the program improved access to addictions treatment for high risk, high need inmates; adhered to evidence-based practices; reduced criminogenic behavior, and providing continuity of service at release from custody.

Speakers:
Doris Schnell, Executive Director, Offender Services, Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice
Colleen Quinlan, Director of Health Services and Addictions, Corrections and Policing, Ministry of Justice
Brian Danyliw, M.S.W., Director, Addictions Services Saskatchewan Health Authority, Regina Area

Presentation:

Addiction Treatment for Incarcerated Males: Program, Partnership, and Progress

This is a panel presentation. Mr. Houghton will speak about the genesis of the initiative, its unique creative aspects, and how the initiative works with the CFSEU BCs greater public engagement strategy. Mr. Vatic will argue that gang violence undermines public safety and creates a myriad of negative and costly consequences to society. He will explore the need to improve understanding of the economic burden of crime in general and violent gang crime in particular. An overview will be provided of how the CFSEU BCs Strategic Research Office has interpreted this strategic policing need, and how they quantify the societal impact of gangs and organized crime in economic terms. Dr. Wilson will discuss the assessment tool developed to assist program coordinators to triage clients, assess client strengths and needs, and monitor progress through the intervention and exiting programs.

Speakers:
Lindsay Houghton, Staff Sergeant, Organized Crime Agency of British Columbia NCO, Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of BC
Peter Vatic, Director of Strategic Research, Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of BC
Catherine M. Wilson, Ph.D., Strategic Research Analyst, Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of BC

Current Issues and Initiatives with Indigenous Offenders

Speaker: Lisa Allgaier, Director General, Aboriginal Initiatives Directorate, Correctional Service Canada

Presentation:

Current Issues and Initiatives with Indigenous Offenders

Attitudes toward sexual aggression are thought to influence sexually aggressive behavior and are considered important in theory, research, and practice. Evaluation is a key feature of attitudes in the general social psychological literature. However, evaluation of sexual aggression (i.e., how negatively or positively sexual aggression is viewed) seems to have received little attention in sexual aggression theory, research, and assessment. In this workshop, he will present his work on the conceptualization and measurement of evaluative attitudes toward sexual aggression and discuss implications for research and practice. 

Speaker: Kevin Nunes, Associate Professor, Department of Psychology, Carleton University

Presentation:

Evaluative Attitudes Toward Sexual Aggression

The Human Trafficking in Saskatchewan presentation includes information on the definition of human trafficking, why people are trafficked, who is vulnerable to being trafficked, how people are recruited, indicators of human trafficking, victim mindset, victim needs, examples of human trafficking in Saskatchewan, identifying and targeting the problem, solutions for reducing human trafficking, and partnerships such as law enforcement, non-governmental organizations, and provincial agencies.

Speaker: Bruce Fenske, Criminal Intelligence Analyst, Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Presentation:

Human Trafficking in Saskatchewan

Public safety personnel include a broad array of professionals who, as a function of their service, appear very likely to be exposed to potentially traumatic events. Such exposures, particularly when coupled with other operational stressors and organizational stressors, may increase the risk for one or more mental health injuries. There have been growing efforts to understand the scope of mental health injuries among public safety personnel and identify evidence-based solutions that may help to mitigate the impact of their work-related stressors.  The presentation will provide a review of the current evidence and provide recommendations for steps towards helping those who serve.

Speaker: Dr. R. Nicholas Carleton, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Regina & Dr. Rose Ricciardelli, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Memorial University 

Presentation:

Impacts of Operational and Organizational Stress on Public Safety Personnel

Research on the Service Planning Instrument (SPIn), an assessment protocol for justice-involved adults featuring a range of risks, needs, and strengths (i.e. protective factors), will be presented to demonstrate how the inclusion of strengths in the assessment model is apt to (1) increase accuracy in predicting future criminal outcomes, and (2) inform case management efforts. An illustration of how strengths can practically be integrated into case planning will ensue, along with recommendations for gender-informed assessment and intervention practices for women offenders.

Speaker: Natalie Jones, Adjunct Research Professor, Department of Psychology, Carleton University

Presentation:

A Positive Spin: The Infusion of Strengths into the Assessment and Intervention Process with Justice-Involved Adults

The Serious Violent Offender Response is a comprehensive, targeted, evidence-based approach intended to reduce the threat posed by high-risk violent offenders in the province of Saskatchewan. The SVOR was formally implemented in May 2013 and is currently fully operational in two geographic regions of the province, one urban (Saskatoon) and one rural (Battleford area). Current service delivery partners include Public Prosecutions, Adult Corrections, Federal and Municipal Police Services (RCMP and Saskatoon Police Service), the Canadian Mental Health Association - SK Division (CMHA-SK) which created the Justice Community Support Program (JCSP) and most recent, the provision of services by clinical psychology residents from the Saskatchewan Health Authority.  The workshop will provide an overview of the SVOR including the principles, structures, training, and initial evaluations. This will also include a front line team presentation identifying roles, communication between partners, integrated case planning, and team approach to providing strategic supervision and rehabilitative services.

Speakers: 
Dean Carey, Director of Offender Programs, Saskatchewan Ministry of Justice
Keira Stockdale, Clinical Psychologist of Policing, Saskatoon Police Service

Presentation:

Serious Violent Offender Response

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce a model of how our perceptions of violent risk and mental health differ from the data are examined, noting the ways that this difference prevents an integrated model. The model uses five basic levels of risk for how mental health variables differentially interact with violence. Results will be presented on intervention efforts integrating violence and mental health. Application to both individual clients and public policy will be discussed.

Speaker: Daryl Kroner, Professor, Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Southern Illinois University

Presentation:

Toward an Integrated Model of Violence and Mental Health

In recent years, a growing number of Canadian provinces have developed and implemented human rights-compliant policies for trans and other gender-variant prisoners. In 2017, the Correctional Service of Canada announced a similar reform of its approach to accommodating gender diversity in federal institutions. Based on research evidence, this workshop will provide narratives of the everyday realities of trans prisoners during, and after, incarceration. It will also present the perspectives and experiences of corrections professionals working with such prisoners. The presentation will conclude with an interactive activity encouraging workshop participants to reflect on the challenges they may face when working with trans offenders and to identify possible solutions.

Speaker: William Hebert, Ph.D. Candidate in Anthropology and Junior Fellow at the Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies, University of Toronto

Presentation:

Trans and Gender Variant Realities in a Changing Policy Landscape: Evidence-Based Approaches for the Frontline

Mr. Garner will share his experiences of trauma, 38 years of substance use disorder or SUD, and his unexpected recovery into living a gentle and considerate life. Growing up in a violent and chaotic home, the coping strategies were of a child seeking safety and connection. He will discuss the miracle of drugs and alcohol and the darkness of active SUD. He asks just how many time can one lose everyone and everything in a lifetime. He discusses compassion, respect, and safety as a doorway to neuroplasticity or how he changed his mind. He explains how he lives with his past if death is no longer a solution. He shares how he is staying well with a chronic condition of how he got friendly with his SUD diagnosis. He will share his life today and explain why he is telling his story.

Speaker: Gord Garner, Executive Director, Community Addictions Peer Support Association, and Chair of Recovery Day Ottawa

Presentation:

The Unexpected Journey to a Gentle Considerate Life – A Recovery Story

As frequently comes to public attention through contemporary media (both traditional and social), use of force involving criminal justice actors is topical and controversial. Today’s public is, more than ever, engaged with such occurrences and many Canadians are demanding more accountability, legitimacy, transparency, and visibility in the interactions between citizens and law enforcement/corrections. In fact, it can be persuasively argued that ‘new visibility’ is, for all intents and purposes, the new accountability. Within this contemporary criminal justice reality, this workshop will explore body-worn video recording – in terms of practical considerations in addressing concerns with the use of force accountability – both within criminal justice institutions and across the public milieu.

Speaker: Gregory Brown, Ph.D. candidate, Department of Sociology, Carleton University

Presentation:

Use of Force, New Visibility, and Body-Worn Video

The Violent Crime Linkage Analysis System (ViCLAS) was developed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in 1991 because a need was identified to enhance communication and information-sharing between jurisdictions. In ViCLAS, solved and unsolved crimes are analyzed in order to link similar cases based on offender behavior. By doing so, ViCLAS can assist in solving crimes and lead to the identification of persons of interest in an investigation and provide investigational avenues for police. This presentation will examine how we use offender behaviors to conduct linkage analysis and develop links within ViCLAS.

Speakers:
Samantha Lytle, ViCLAS Analyst, Saskatchewan Provincial ViCLAS Centre, Royal Canadian Mounted Police
Natasha Selinger, ViCLAS Analyst, Saskatchewan Provincial ViCLAS Centre Violent Crime, Royal Canadian Mounted Police

Lisa Allgaier has been Director General of the Aboriginal Initiatives Directorate since November 2002. Prior to this role, she was the Director of Aboriginal Health in BC and President of the John Howard Society for over five years. Ms. Allgaier is Swampy Cree from northern Manitoba. Her work has involved the development of the Aboriginal Continuum of Care, the Strategic Plan, for Aboriginal Corrections, and the establishment of the National Elders Working Group. She brings extended insights from her work with health, child welfare, social work, justice, and education into the current issues and challenges with Indigenous offenders.

Dr. Nick Carleton, Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Regina - Impacts of Operational and Organizational Stress on Public Safety Personnel

Dr. Nick Carleton is currently the Scientific Director for the Canadian Institute for Public Safety Research and Treatment. He has published more than 120 peer-reviewed journal articles, book chapters, and encyclopedia entries exploring the fundamental bases of anxiety and related disorders. Dr. Carleton’s interests include the biopsychosocial measurement, assessment, and treatments of trauma, anxiety, and somatic disorders, and he maintains a small private practice for military, first responders, and other public safety personnel who have anxiety and related disorders, particularly posttraumatic stress disorder.

Dr. Rose Ricciardelli, Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, Memorial University - Impacts of Operational and Organizational Stress on Public Safety Personnel

Dr. Rose Ricciardelli is an Associate Professor at Memorial University. Her research is centered on social health, corrections, and gender, including evolving understandings of gender, vulnerabilities, risk, and experiences and issues within different facets of the criminal justice system. Beyond her work on the realities of penal living and community re-entry for federally incarcerated men in Canada, her current work includes a focus on the experiences of correctional officers and police officers given the potential for compromised psychological, physical, and social health inherent to the occupations.

Dr. Nick Carleton and Dr. Rose Ricciardelli's presentation will offer insight into ways in which public safety professionals’ mental health can be supported to prevent mental health injuries and to support their recovery.

Gord Garner, Executive Director, Community Addictions Peer Support Association, and Chair of Recovery Day Ottawa - The Unexpected Journey to a Gentle Considerate Life – A Recovery Story

Mr. Gord Garner will share his powerful and poignant narratives of his lived experience of trauma, Substance Use Disorder (SUD), and recovery to help practitioners understand the challenges of the disorder.
