Women probation clients suffer further legal, health, and social consequences. The overarching aim of this project is to examine the impact of an academic healthcare-probation partnership on legal and medical outcomes for 140 high-recidivism risk women. The partnership includes training and supervision of probation officers in gender and trauma-informed motivational strategies. This qualitative framework analysis explores themes which arose in audio-taped meetings between the trained probation officers and 20 clients. The Socio-ecological Model and Self-Determination Theory provide the frameworks. Emerging session themes reveal: 1) officers provide instrumental support to address daily living needs for the women and their children; 2) clients struggle for housing while escaping intimate partner violence and drugs; 3) officers implemented motivational and trauma-specific strategies. The innovative program shows promise.
