About the Carey Guides

Research demonstrates that traditional methods of supervision are ineffective in reducing recidivism among adult and juvenile offenders. For behavior change and recidivism reduction to be possible, offenders must understand the personal and environmental factors underlying their offending behavior and be taught the skills they need in order to make positive changes in the future. The Carey Guides are designed to equip corrections professionals with the information and tools they need to support these changes among their clients.

Take a look inside at a sample of the Carey Guides.

We know that as corrections professionals you have a heavy workload and little time, so we have made the Guides short, practical, and easy to use. They are designed to help you do your job more effectively by translating evidence-based practices into a series of strategies and tools that are quick and to the point.

Your purchase of the Carey Guides includes 33 handbooks that help corrections professionals use EBP with their clients. There are 14 Blue Guides which specifically address offenders’ criminogenic needs and 19 Red Guides which address common case management issues. (Scroll to the bottom of this page to see all 33 Guide titles.)

Each Guide follows a consistent format. Background information provides the corrections professional with important research findings and contextual information to support the application of evidence-based approaches. Each Guide also contains two to five Tools (worksheets). These Tools are designed for use by offenders—with the assistance of their corrections professional—to understand and address risk factors, triggers, and other conditions that are essential to their success. In total, the Guides contain 98 Tools that corrections professionals can use as they work with offenders to address their skill deficits and make positive changes in their lives.
