This unique self-scoring assessment identifies the challenges offenders will face upon release and reentry into society. It measures barriers in the following categories: Basic Needs, Job Search, Family Concerns, Life Skills, and Career Development. With this tool, counselors and administrators can quickly identify their clients’ major concerns. In addition, the Offender Reintegration Scale (ORS) can be used as both a pre-release and post-release measure.
The ORS helps offenders and ex-offenders identify potential barriers to successful reentry, it also helps them develop a plan for overcoming these barriers to become a successful, contributing member of society. Counselors and administrators can better prevent recidivism, institutions can access the success of rehabilitation efforts and programs, and ex-offenders can take the steps necessary to move forward. Takes only 20-30 minutes to complete.
