Andrews and Bonta (2003) term the strongest predictors of offending the Central Eight, which is often domains/areas included in prominent risk assessment tools and include the history of antisocial behavior (prior offending), anti-social attitudes/beliefs, antisocial peer associations, antisocial personality pattern (risk-taking, impulsivity, low self-control, hostile, callous), education and/or employment difficulties, family issues, and substance abuse. Arguably, seven of the eight are dynamic, while the history of antisocial behavior is static.

You may try reading the original book:
Andrews, D. A., & Bonta, J. A. (2003). The psychology of criminal conduct (3rd ed.). Anderson.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
