Multidisciplinary Approach

WORKING AS A TEAM


OJJ promotes a multidisciplinary approach to meet the needs of the youth. When developing the Individual Service Plan (ISP), the Probation and Parole Officer as well as the case managers in the secure care facilities gather information and rely on the expertise of staff in a variety of disciplines that may include program specialists, other case managers, social workers, psychologists, psychiatrists, educational staff, regional managers, supervisors, medical staff, family, juvenile justice staff, and any other staff responsible for the care of the youth.

OJJ meets as a team to fully discuss and address the needs of the youth in a meeting called a staffing.  Each member of the team contributes valuable information leading to comprehensive coordination of services. When discussing the youth, documentation is reviewed and ideas are shared regarding the youth’s progress. The team discussing a youth’s plan considers community resources, assistance for the families, and linkages to community agencies.
