Process and purpose of intake, assessments, and classifications

Top of Form

After looking into the process and purpose of intake, assessments, and classifications, you are now going to bring them all together.


All these steps help you create open lines of communication with your clients, assess their criminogenic needs, determine the risks they face, and acquire the data you need to best create plans for helping your clients. In this assignment, demonstrate your intake and assessment skills through completing an assessment.


Read the following case study:


Stanley is a 26-year-old man with a history of opioid use and a criminal history of two DUIs, a misdemeanor shoplifting charge, three misdemeanor trespassing charges, and one felony burglary charge as a juvenile (16). Stanley’s mother died of cancer when he was 11, and he remained with his father, who was devastated by the loss of his wife, until he moved out of the family home at 19. He has not been successful on his own, experiencing homelessness for short periods of time and returning to live with his father intermittently. Stanley’s father is very concerned about his drug use and will attempt to keep Stanley at the house, in his room, to support him through detox, and has the perspective that if Stanley is clean, the problem is solved.


Stanley’s opioid use started when the medication was prescribed to him following an injury accident on the job at Jiffy Lube. Prior to that, he had used alcohol as a juvenile and regularly used marijuana since he was about 14.


Stanley graduated from high school and has taken some college courses. He is an intelligent young man, though he does not have any ideas about a career and has a lack of focus for school. He has been employed at Jiffy Lube doing oil changes. He has also held four other low-skill jobs. He has not been fired and tends to be promoted quickly in his jobs, but feels overwhelmed by the added responsibility and tends to quit shortly after being promoted.


Stanley enjoys hanging out with his skateboarding friends and has never had a girlfriend. He experienced depression following the death of his mother, and his father put him in counseling. Stanley enjoyed the counseling and found it to be very helpful, and although he has not seen the counselor professionally in almost 10 years, he maintains contact with him. Stanley was never put on any medication for the depression, nor has he had any other diagnoses.


Imagine you completed an intake session with Stanley that included the completion of a client assessment.


Complete a 525- to 700-word assessment of Stanley using the information in the scenario. Refer to Appendix A (pp. 47–57) of the Objective Jail Classification Systems: A Guide for Jail Administrators from the National Institute of Corrections for the information that should be included in the assessment. Include as much information as you can ascertain from the scenario.


Write a 175- to 350-word summary of the intake session as notes for the client’s file. Include the following:

    • The results of your assessment of the client
    • The classifications you recommend and why
    • The kind of help you suggest might be provided to Stanley based on the intake, assessment, and classification
