Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Division of Juvenile Justice (JJ) is pleased to announce a sixth year of statewide training on the Michigan Juvenile Justice Assessment System (MJJAS). The MJJAS is provided to MDHHS through a contractual agreement with the University of Cincinnati Research Institute and is also known as the Ohio Youth Assessment System© (OYAS). The MJJAS is a structured risk assessment tool that identifies the likelihood of a youth engaging in future criminal behavior and informs appropriate risk classification. The MJJAS assessments can be re-administered over time to determine changes in risk level based upon changes in behavioral profile or life situation. The MJJAS can be used at five different decision points for a youth: diversion, detention, disposition, juvenile justice residential placement, and reentry to the community from residential placement. In addition to risk assessment, results from the disposition, residential and reentry tools are assistive for case planning, and for identification of residential and re-entry service needs.
There is no registration fee for this training. JJ specialists and supervisors, and public and private residential treatment staff and supervisors working with juvenile justice youth under the care and supervision of MDHHS will be given priority to register for this training. Registration for others is on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants that fail to attend, arrive late, depart early, or attend only portions of the training will not be eligible to receive certification to administer the MJJAS. Virtual classes will close approximately two weeks prior to registration or sooner if class size is reached.
Registration for MJJAS classes should be completed using the MDHHS Learning Management System (LMS). Those with access to MiSACWIS should have MDHHS LMS access and should follow the listed steps in LMS to register for the training. If you encounter problems or need assistance registering for training contact the LMS helpdesk at MDHHStraining@michigan.gov. If you need to cancel after you have been confirmed to attend the training, this should also be completed through the LMS. If you do not have access to the LMS, you may contact Michelle Sage at MDHHS-MJJAS@michigan.gov or Clinton Wirtz, at wirtzc@michigan.gov for information on how to register.
