Brief Program Description

This intriguing workshop explores the thinking and behavior that sabotages youth at risk in the community and propels them toward incarceration. We will first establish the rationale for cognitive-behavioral interventions (CBI), then delve into cognitive skills training, a CBI approach to help youth gain self-control skills, social skills, and/or problem-solving skills. Then, we will examine common distortions in thinking, and explore cognitive restructuring, a CBI approach used to challenge the false logic that youth at risk use to justify their actions. Participants will leave with new insights and skills for helping this challenging population develop a more prosocial mindset.
