Corrections Lifeskills

US Probation – Western, TX (El Paso Office)

The Western Texas District of Federal Probation has requested that all of the USPO’s in the El Paso office receive training on the Lifeskills Link Program. Over 700 US Probation Officers have been trained on the Lifeskills Link Program nationwide. An emphasis will be given to how this program is used in conjunction with the STARR (Staff Training Aimed at Reducing Rearrest) approach as well as PCRA 2.0 (Post Conviction Risk Assessment). The training will also demonstrate how the ACCI CBT Lifeskills Courses can be fully translated into Spanish for probationers.
