TCU CJ Organizational (Staff) Assessments

TCU CJ Organizational Readiness for Change (TCU CJ ORC) is self-administered by correctional program staff. One version is designed for counseling staff (TCU CJ-ORC-S) and another for program directors or supervisors (TCU CJ-ORC-D). Motivational factors include program needs, training needs, and pressures for change, while program resources are evaluated in regard to office facilities, staffing, training, equipment, and the Internet. Organizational dynamics include scales on staff attributes (growth, efficacy, influence, adaptability, and clinical orientation) and climate (mission, cohesion, autonomy, communication, stress, and openness to change).
