Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction IEJ- Best Practices Tool Kit

The Best Practices Tool-Kit aims to systematically identify empirical evidence regarding information and interventions on specific topics. In all, 9 Tool-Kits were published which highlights 2-4 practices/programs that are proven, promising or an exemplary best practice.  The Tool-Kits also provide citations/references for more extensive reading, if the reader so chooses.

For definition purposes, best practices fall on a continuum ranging from those practices that are well established and have clearly demonstrated their effectiveness to those that show promise or may be exemplary practices, but have yet to be fully evaluated and their results documented (Wilkinson 2003). The objective of the tool kit is to provide a sound evidence base that will better inform policy makers, practitioners and researchers.
