#9801 Each year more than 600,000 men and women are released from state and federal prisons. Another 11 million circulate in and out of local jails and detention centers. Often known for their scary rap sheets rather than stellar resumes, individuals with troubled backgrounds face many barriers to reentry success.
Designed for formerly incarcerated individuals (ex-offenders) in transition, the Barriers to Reentry Success Inventory (BRSI) is self-scored and self-interpreted assessment device. It measures important individual concerns relating to:
- Basic needs
- Digital literacy
- Career development
- Job search
Key features of the BRSI include:
- Helps ex-offenders develop an individualized re-entry success plan.
- Includes a 21-page administrator’s guide designed to help counselors, administrators, and corrections personnel facilitate the inventory.
- Includes a new digital literacy scale that measures users’ familiarity with today’s challenging technology.
- Features a new user-friendly booklet format.
- Takes an average of 25 minutes to complete the exercise.
- Offers flexibility to administer individually or in groups.
