Planning Restorative Outcomes: Assessment of Strengths and Needs

Thursday, March 23, 2023
1 - 2:30 p.m. CT

Planning Restorative Outcomes [PRO Assessment] reframes problems as opportunities for learning with children and youth at risk. This strength-based approach moves beyond the narrow focus on deficit and disorder of traditional diagnostic methods. The young person is seen as the key expert on his or her life and is enlisted to develop positive plans for healing and growth. PRO Assessment can be used for brief crisis resolution, for developing social and emotional learning and treatment plans, and for reclaiming interventions with youth who are experiencing serious conflict or trauma. This model is transforming assessment in education, treatment, juvenile justice, and child and youth care.
