Are there any best practice recommendations for delivery of the Thinking For A Change program to clients?

Yes, program fidelity and integrity are critical to program success so it is important to follow the curriculum as designed. Following are some best practice recommendations:

  • Use two trained facilitators,
  • Deliver two sessions each week,
  • Target the right clients, these are medium- to high-risk offenders,
  • Ensure that each client in the group has the opportunity to try every skill during the class,
  • Ensure that clients complete the intersession homework
  • Make sure all clients receive feedback.

It is also important that the program be completed from beginning to end due to the integrated nature of the program.
