In 1996, The Personality Adjustment Index behavioral assessment (PAI) was developed to evaluate the need of further programming for clients. It is a computerized test that has been standardized specifically to the criminal justice field, so it accurately measures the degree of deviancy when analyzing the behavior of offenders.
It is administered to every WJS client during the intake process.
The PAI has been validated through research by Steven Harrison, Ph.D., at the
University of Utah Graduate School of Social Work. This assessment has been
developed into two versions in order to accurately measure the behaviors and
programming needs of both juveniles and adults.
