Our office uses the OFFICIAL Thinking for a Change Program as developed by The National Institute of Corrections.  The course is divided into 25 modules.  During the course the client completes multiple modules a session.  Level II includes an evaluation to determine how to assist the client individually this does not change the length of treatment just provides background information to assist us in treatment.

   MRT (Moral Reconation Therapy)

Our office has been certified and trained to offer the MRT program.  This is a program that the corrections office has promoted and used to replace Thinking for a Change.  MRT is a cognitive-behavioral counseling program that combines education, group and individual counseling, and structured exercises designed to foster moral development in treatment-resistant clients.  If clients’ judgments about right and wrong are made from low levels of moral reasoning, counseling them, training them in job skills, and even punishing them will have little long-lasting impact on their behavior.  They must be confronted with the consequences of their behavior and the effect that it has had on their family, friends and community.  Poor moral reasoning is common within at-risk populations.  MRT addresses beliefs and reasoning. It is a systematic, step-by-step group counseling treatment approach for treatment-resistant clients.  The program is designed to alter how clients think and make judgments about what is right and wrong. The MRT system approaches the problem of treating resistant populations as a problem of low levels of moral reasoning.  In this case, “moral” does not refer to a religious concept, but rather the theoretical conceptualization of psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg.  Moral reasoning represents how a person makes decisions about what he or she should or should not do in a given situation.

 Domestic Violence Perpetrator

Currently our offices hold the DHS state DV contract.  This means that we are held to certain state guidelines and have undergone all state required annual trainings.  All DV treatment is therapeutic and with that said it does require us to do an evaluation and assessment, this is also required by our state licensing requirements.  Although an evaluation is completed, it does not change the length of treatment when a 16 week course is ordered, instead it is to provide us information regarding the client and the case so we can cater treatment to their situation.  The level of treatment is determined through the evaluation and completion of the Domestic Violence Risk Needs Assessment (DVRNA). 

   Domestic Violence Victim Services

Our victims group is a therapeutic support group for victims of domestic violence.  This is done in a group setting but also can include individual treatment.  Group treatment assists victims of domestic violence in understanding and recognizing various aspects of violence experienced through their relationships.  Individuals receiving this service are provided therapeutic interventions to assist them in preventing future violence related incidents, development of safety plans, self-esteem and skills building to change their situations.
