The program is in use in corrections, probation and parole, community corrections, diversion programs, all juvenile programs, and in private treatment settings.
How It Is Conducted
The program has 8 modules completed in 8 group sessions supplemented by several sessions with a facilitator. Clients complete homework for each module prior to coming to group. In group each client presents his or her homework to the group and the facilitator passes the client to the next module or has the client redo the homework based on objective criteria. The groups are open-ended meaning that new clients can enter an ongoing group at any time. Each group session will usually have new clients as well as some finishing the program. A typical group will have a client present Module 1, another client completes Module 2, and so on. The workbook is individualized to specific client needs by requirements to meet with the facilitator or counselor at several modules.
