Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) is a cognitive-behavioral program for substance abuse treatment and for criminal justice offenders. It combines education, group/individual counseling, and structured exercises. MRT addresses beliefs and reasoning. The program is designed to help offenders change the way they think and make judgments about what is right and wrong.
The Anger Management program provides evidence-based programs and materials that can help clients recognize, overcome and control anger management challenges, thereby reducing criminal activity. It is used with violent offenders, with argumentative or oppositional clients, as a supplemental program with domestic violence perpetrators, with road rage with substance abuse, and with drug courts.
Courage to Change
Through the use of this cognitive-behavioral Interactive Journaling system and interaction with their resource team, participants address their individual problem areas within the "Big Six" criminogenic needs identified by the Administrative Office of Probation and Pretrial Services and other secondary needs identified within the assessment process.
By personalizing the information presented in the Journals to their own circumstances, participants will develop a roadmap to success in their efforts to change.
A significant portion of this Interactive Journaling series has been adapted from content developed in collaboration with the Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons.
