The National Institute of Corrections is excited to offer a workshop to allow corrections professionals an opportunity to learn, understand, and explore one of the most used and sought after cognitive behavioral programs in the county “Thinking for a Change”. The Thinking for a Change (T4C) program has been around for over 20 years with over 10,000 trained facilitators in the U.S. and territories. T4C integrates the best in cognitive-behavioral theories and interventions that evidence-based research has offered over the last six decades. T4C utilizes the clear body of evidence that shows these interventions positively impact individuals, helping to create change in both thinking and behavior. Cognitive-behavioral interventions (CBI) have been proven to achieve the goal in the corrections field of reduce reoffending/recidivism. This workshop will give participants the opportunity to learn about the theories, principles, and concepts of Cognitive-behavioral interventions. They will also learn the T4C program including its curriculum, design, and flow of the program. And finally, participants will dive deeper and explore the program by using interactive tools that are utilized within T4C in innovated, fun, and exciting ways.
