Effective Practices in Correctional Settings-II (EPICS-II)
 consists of a set of supervision techniques that staff can use daily in their interactions with clients. The EPICS-II skills help staff develop rapport, increase motivation to change, provide intentional interventions aimed at changing offender behavior, and identify and address skill deficits. EPICS-II represents a collaborative, and individualized evidence based approach to target current factors that put the client at risk for future criminal behavior. All staff can use these skills across the criminal justice system, in the institution or the in the community, and with adult or juvenile offenders.
