About Bauman Consulting Group

Bauman Consulting Group (BCG) was founded in 2012 as an avenue to serve criminal justice and social services agencies throughout the country as they worked to implement research results into practical applications.  Through this work BCG has provided consultant services to the National Institute of Corrections, the Center for Effective Public Policy, the National Resource Center on Justice Involved Women, the Moss Group, and many state and local criminal justice agencies.

BCG currently provides trainings and workshops in a number of areas including Evidence-Based Practices, Risk and Need Assessments, Gender-Responsive Principles and Practices, Trauma-Informed Practices, Skills for Change, Leadership and Management Development, and Organizational Development. In addition to conducting training programs, BCG has created a number of training curricula for agencies to meet their unique needs and assisted with facilitating their internal capacity to train on these topics.

BCG also has experience providing consulting services and technical assistance to agencies by facilitating strategic planning, developing implementation and action plans, conducting program and agency evaluations, enhancing organizational culture, developing workplace wellness initiatives, formulating policy and procedure, leading agency and program redesigns, conducting applied research, and providing expert recommendations for agency and program improvement. BCG also offers guidance on implementing classification systems, risk and needs assessments, rehabilitative programming, and continuous quality improvement procedures. Additionally, this experienced team of consultants works to advance leaders and managers within the agency through staff and team development. Consultants emphasize the utilization of mixed model approaches combining emotional intelligence, personality, and several leadership philosophies.

BCG conducts team building and team coaching workshops and works with correctional leaders and practitioners through one-on-one and group coaching sessions. Often these workshops integrate personality, emotional intelligence, or leadership assessments such as the Myers Briggs Typology Indicator (MBTI), the Emotional Intelligence Inventory 2.0 (EQ-I 2.0), the Team Emotional and Social Intelligence Survey (TESI 2.0), and the Global Leadership Assessment 360 (GLA 360).

BCG have developed several assessments and treatment interventions designed to assist with the rehabilitative efforts of justice-involved individuals. These include the Gender-Informed Needs Assessment (GINA) for pre-trial defendants, Steps to Success: A Re-Entry Workbook, and Pathways to Change: Individual Casework Interventions for Criminal Justice-Involved Women.

Consultants with BCG have been published in a number of journals including Criminal Justice & Behavior; American Jails; Women, Girls, and Criminal Justice; and Corrections Today. They have also contributed to books such as, Cognitive Behavioral Programs and Interventions: What Works with At-Risk Youth, 2nd Edition,and they have written a number of technical reports for state and federal agencies. In addition to their written work, BCG consultants speak regularly at conferences and events around the nation.
