Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) Treatment
CBT focuses on treating the residents’ substance abuse, criminogenic behavior, and any coexisting mental disorder. It’s designed to help the residents’ practice newly acquired cognitive behavioral skills as they encounter stressors identified as high-risk situations associated with relapse.
Each resident is assigned a clinician who will provide counseling and case management services. The clinician and resident develop an individual case plan that addresses one’s criminogenic needs by developing goals and a timetable for completion. The case plan is based on the Risk Needs Responsivity (RNR) principle and is revised as necessary based on the resident’s progress. The assigned clinician also assists the resident with planning for re-entry to include continued care, obtaining housing, employment, and maintaining a responsible life-style. Treatment consists of cognitive curricula and a Behavior Management System wherein the resident must demonstrate the ability to acquire and integrate prosocial skills to successfully complete it.
Behavior Management Phase System
Focuses on dynamic factors that can changed - such as one’s behaviors, values, attitudes, education and vocation by treating the underlying thoughts, attitudes and behaviors that lead to criminal behavior. To help a resident to develop positive traits, one must earn the incentives needed to progress from orientation to reentry. Advancement is based on the residents commitment to change which is measured by one’s ability to complete treatment goals, follow community rules, and demonstrate, through role plays, putting into practice what one has learned.
Thinking for a Change (T4C)
Is an integrated approach to changing offender behavior, developed by Barry Glick, Jack Bush, and Juliana Taymans in cooperation with the National Institute of Corrections (NIC) that uses a combination of approaches to increase an offender’s awareness of themselves and others. It integrates cognitive restructuring, social skills, and problem solving. The program begins by teaching offenders an introspective process for examining their ways of thinking and their feelings, beliefs, and attitudes. The process is reinforced throughout the program. Social-skills training is provided as an alternative to antisocial behaviors. The program culminates by integrating the skills offenders have learned into steps for problem solving. Problem solving becomes the central approach offenders learn that enables them to work through difficult situations without engaging in criminal behavior.
