Analytical Report Writing Skills, 4 hours
The evaluation is a vital section of a probation report, and perhaps the most difficult to write. Building an argument for a particular recommendation and a set of conditions requires analytical writing skill; mere repetition of summary information from other sections of the report is not adequate. This four-hour course teaches staff to “connect the dots” that lead logically to an appropriate and persuasive recommendation. This is a fast-paced course.
