studentIntervention Program

In cooperation with the Beltrami County Attorney’s Office, the MN Department of Corrections, Beltrami County Health and Human Services, Beltrami County schools, and other local service providers, Intervention Programming aims to reduce rates of recidivism and suspension by providing restoratively-focused interventions for youths engaging in harmful behaviors. Intervention Programming is primarily funded by a grant from the State of Minnesota Office of Justice Programs, a division of the MN Department of Public Safety.

BASC employs one full-time Intervention Program Specialist to deliver these services:

Alternative Responses to Court

  • ARCM (Alternative Response Case Management) - Targeted case management to meet the needs of youths and families referred by the County Attorney’s Office without a formal court order. Youth and family assist in creating the list of conditions to follow for successful discharge from programming.

  • RESCU (Restoration, Education, Skills, Change, and You) - A three-hour cognitively-based program which utilizes the Interactive Journal series “Forward Thinking” that is focused on providing parents and their youth a safe space to discuss the young person’s choices, risks, and accountability.

  • Traffic Law Refresher Course - A one-hour pre- and post- test formatted class which requires youth to answer questions regarding the most commonly referred traffic offenses. Utilizes the MN Driver’s Manual as a guide to correct wrong answers.

  • RGC (Restorative Group Conferencing) - A process which brings together all stakeholders in a harmful incident to discuss what happened, and to decide what the young person responsible must do to make things right to the best of his/her ability.

Alternative Responses to Suspension

  • RGC (Restorative Group Conferencing) - A process which brings together all stakeholders in a harmful incident to discuss what happened, and to decide what the young person responsible must do to make things right to the best of his/her ability.

  • Peace Circles - A process which brings together students engaged in conflict in order for them to practice conflict resolution using non-violent communication.

Client and Family-Centered Practices

  • Collaborative Conferencing (CC) - A process developed as a part of the Dually-Involved Youth Project which brings together the youth, family, case managers, probation agent, ICWA workers, and any other identified parties to discuss and assess the current risks, needs, and strengths of the youth and family. Culminates with an agreement signed by all parties outlining possible conditions of probation.

  • Family Group Decision Making (FGDM) - A process which brings together a broad family unit in order for the participants to devise a plan (absent all professionals) to address specific needs.
