In this course, you will develop an understanding of the complex and evolving process of Case Management in the criminal justice and related fields. Case management is a process for managing responses to clients’ needs, which commences from the time a client enters the criminal justice, or wider human services, system until they exit it. You will examine and analyse the similarities and differences in the theoretical and practical application of case management practice. This course will utilise a holistic approach to working with a client. You will consider a range of issues and strategies from client assessment, problem solving, goal setting (with the client) planning and implementation issues, working with involuntary clients, engagement, empowerment and monitoring.
