FOUR PRINCIPLES 2
Principles of Effective Intervention
Many years of scientific study there were psychologist that developed four principles of
effect which were called Risk principles, Criminogenic need principles, Treatment principles,
and Fidelity principles.
The first of the four principles of effective intervention is risk principle. Risk principles
means that offenders should be provided with supervision and the treatment levels and it also
mean like the risk of crime they commit. According to (Lowenkamp & Latessa 2002) “For our
purpose. “risk” refers to the probably of reoffending”. Which means that it targeted high risk
offender to help them not to get reoffended. That like certain offense consider low and some
high. According to (Latessa 2002)” For example, in the sense that a felon poses a higher risk than
a misdemeanor. I actually agree with this system we need to pay a lot more attention to the
offender that are more higher risk then all the others. Because to me I feel that they don’t get the
help they will do it again.
The second principle the criminogenic need principle are attributes of the offender that
are directly link to criminal behavior. For example criminogenic is addiction to like alcohol or
drug and if your caught drinking while driving they send you to jail but, when you get our there
are A.A meeting that you can go to. According to (Wright 2012) “Between 70 and 80 percent of
all arrestees have drug and alcohol in their system at the time of their arrest. To me I feel that
criminogenic need is good. It can help those that need help with addiction like alcohol it is very
serious.

FOUR PRINCIPLES 3
The third principle would be the treatment principle which means basically a mixture of
cognitive and behavioral stragies. For example they give you treatment you need for drug abuse
cause cognitive is like the way you think and behavioral is like the way like getting treatment. I
think they need treatment principle so that they can get the help they need so that they can get
better.
The fourth principle is the Fidelity principle which means the degree to which a treatment
program adheres to the principles of effective intervention. According to (Latessa 2002) “ For
example found that substance abusing offender who participated in therapeutic community and
received after care community likely to be arrest-free and drug-free. “It is a good idea to have
this principle so that don’t have to worry about being arrest and staying drug free so they can
stay out of jail.
