Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

     Drug Courts have the greatest impact on low risk/low need offenders?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Drug Courts do not have the greatest impact on low risk/low need offenders. Drug Courts are specifically designed to target high risk/high need offenders who have substance abuse issues and are involved in criminal activities. These offenders require intensive supervision, treatment, and support to address their underlying issues and reduce their likelihood of reoffending. Low risk/low need offenders, on the other hand, may not require the same level of intervention and can potentially be better served through alternative programs or community-based interventions.

     Prognostic risk is sometimes called:

    • A.

      High Risk

    • B.

      Criminogenic Risk

    • C.

      Low Risk

    Correct Answer
    B. Criminogenic Risk
    Explanation
    Prognostic risk refers to the assessment of an individual's likelihood of future negative outcomes or events. Criminogenic risk specifically focuses on the risk factors that contribute to criminal behavior or involvement in criminal activities. Therefore, criminogenic risk is an appropriate term to describe prognostic risk in the context of criminal behavior.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

     High Risk/High Need offenders tend to be least responsive to punishment and most responsive to rewards.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    High Risk/High Need offenders refers to individuals who have a high risk of reoffending and have a high level of criminogenic needs, such as substance abuse or antisocial behavior. Research has shown that these individuals are typically less responsive to punishment alone and more responsive to a combination of punishment and rewards. This is because punishment alone may not address the underlying factors contributing to their criminal behavior, while rewards can provide positive reinforcement for pro-social behavior and motivate them to change. Therefore, it is true that High Risk/High Need offenders tend to be least responsive to punishment and most responsive to rewards.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

     High Risk/High Need offenders do not belong in treatment-oriented dispositions because they do not have an addiction, mental illness or other impairment requiring clinical services?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    High Risk/High Need offenders do belong in treatment-oriented dispositions because they have a high risk of reoffending and have significant needs that require clinical services. These offenders may have addiction issues, mental illnesses, or other impairments that need to be addressed in order to reduce their risk of future criminal behavior. Therefore, it is important to provide them with appropriate treatment and support to address their needs and reduce the likelihood of reoffending.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Proximal goals are:

    • A.

      Behaviors that clients are already capable of engaging in, and that are necessary for long -term improvement to occur.

    • B.

      Behaviors that clients do not have but must be learned for long-term improvement to occur

    • C.

      Cravings and withdrawal systems that clients have shortly after they stop using drugs.

    Correct Answer
    A. Behaviors that clients are already capable of engaging in, and that are necessary for long -term improvement to occur.
    Explanation
    Proximal goals are behaviors that clients are already capable of engaging in, and that are necessary for long-term improvement to occur. This means that these goals are attainable and within the client's current abilities. By focusing on proximal goals, clients can gradually build on their existing skills and behaviors, leading to long-term improvement. This approach recognizes the importance of starting with achievable steps and gradually working towards larger goals, ultimately leading to sustainable progress.

  • 6. 

    Distal goals are also known as long term goals. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Distal goals refer to long-term goals that are typically set for a future time frame. These goals are usually more complex and require a longer period of time to achieve. Therefore, the statement that distal goals are also known as long-term goals is correct.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

     Proximal goals are also known as _____________goals.

    • A.

      Short-term goals

    • B.

      Long-term goals

    • C.

      Neither short or long term goals

    Correct Answer
    A. Short-term goals
    Explanation
    Proximal goals are referred to as short-term goals. These goals are usually achievable within a short period of time and are often stepping stones towards achieving long-term goals. Short-term goals help individuals stay focused and motivated as they provide immediate targets to work towards. They can be broken down into smaller, manageable tasks, making them easier to accomplish.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    It is appropriate to administer a sanction for every infraction, however the severity of the sanction should be _________ for proximal behaviors

    • A.

      Lower

    • B.

      Higher

    • C.

      Same

    Correct Answer
    B. Higher
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Higher". This means that the severity of the sanction should be increased for proximal behaviors. This suggests that when someone commits a behavior that is closer in time or proximity to the desired outcome or goal, the punishment or penalty should be more severe. This approach aims to discourage individuals from engaging in behaviors that are more immediate or directly related to the desired outcome, in order to promote better adherence to rules or guidelines.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

      According to the article, when selecting evidence-based dispositions for drug offenders requires attention to three basic factors, from the list select the correct factor. 

    • A.

      Employment Factor

    • B.

      Education Factor

    • C.

      Risk of Dangerousness

    Correct Answer
    C. Risk of Dangerousness
    Explanation
    When selecting evidence-based dispositions for drug offenders, one of the factors that requires attention is the risk of dangerousness. This means that the decision-making process should consider the potential harm or threat that the offender poses to themselves or others. This factor helps in determining the appropriate disposition or intervention that would best address the level of risk and ensure public safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

     Substance abuse is associated with a ________________ increase in the likelihood of continued criminal offending.

    • A.

      Several-fold

    • B.

      Ten-fold

    • C.

      Seven-fold

    Correct Answer
    A. Several-fold
    Explanation
    Substance abuse is associated with a several-fold increase in the likelihood of continued criminal offending. This means that individuals who engage in substance abuse are much more likely to continue committing crimes compared to those who do not abuse substances. The term "several-fold" indicates a significant and multiplied increase in the risk of criminal behavior.
