Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Group
This groups targets both high & moderate risk populations. In this group, participants are tasked with exploring the short and long-term costs and benefits of their criminal behavior as well as those risk factors unique to them in reoffending. These risk factors include the specific thoughts, beliefs, persons, places, things, and communication styles that have consistently gotten them into trouble in the past. The group provides a structure and format for replacing these with the skills and tools required to make reoffending less likely. Participants identify their personal motivation for change. Through interactive journaling and role plays participants increase insight, practice new behaviors and communication styles.
