The Service Planning Instrument for Women (SPIn-W™) is a risk/needs assessment and case planning tool for justice-involved females.
The Service Planning Instrument for Women (SPIn-W™) is a risk/needs assessment for women 17 years of age and older and is intended for predicting probation and parole outcomes, success in correctional reentry centers, institutional misconducts, and post-release recidivism.
Drawn from research focused on women and other criminal justice populations, the instrument includes a risk/needs assessment of gender-responsive items such as: child-care, family stability factors, history of abuse and trauma, mental and medical health, etc. The assessment results are computer-generated and guide the development of individualized case plans.
