SPEP Treatment Quality Indicator Guide for Providers
Florida is one of four states recently selected to participate in a groundbreaking national initiative to reform the juvenile justice system by translating "what works" into everyday practice and policy. The Florida Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) was notified that it had been chosen for the Juvenile Justice System Improvement Project (JJSIP). Administered by Georgetown University's Center for Juvenile Justice Reform, the JJSIP provides a framework for implementing best practices throughout the entire juvenile justice system.
An essential component of the JJSIP is the implementation of the Standardized Program Evaluation Protocol (SPEP). The SPEP is an evaluation tool to identify shortcomings in juvenile programs or services, specifically delinquency intervention services. The SPEP evaluates how closely delinquency interventions, as provided, align with the most prominent criminological and psychological research in the field. Furthermore, the SPEP helps identify concrete recommendations for improvement in order to optimize intervention effectiveness and positive outcomes. The SPEP evaluates services in the following categories:
Service Type (e.g., cognitive behavioral; group counseling)
Service Quantity/Dosage (Duration and intensity of contact hours)
Service Quality (e.g., written protocols/manuals; training; fidelity monitoring; corrective action)
Juvenile Characteristics (e.g., risk to re-offend; level of youth served)
