Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $1,199,956)

This research involves a long-term RCT evaluation (with qualitative
interviews of participants) of the 5-Key Model of Reentry. The goal of
this effort is to determine the effectiveness of the 5-Key Model at reducing
recidivism, study the link between violent recidivism and traumatic-brain
injuries, and understand the reentry experience for 5-Key Model
participants. The 5-Key Model was developed by Florida State University
(FSU) using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) programming to address
five key criminogenic need areas. The model combines four existing
evidence-based CBT curriculums. The 5-Key Model has been
implemented across a range of criminal justice-involved individuals,
including those with violent and sexual offending histories).
