Thinking for a Change: Part 1 - Introduction

Address the diverse and multiple cognitive, social, and emotional needs of the correctional population using the popular program, Thinking for a Change (T4C). The National Institute of Corrections provides this program, free of charge, to correctional agencies working to develop their continuum of programmatic interventions in this area, and also supports an online forum for discussing cognitive behavioral interventions and the T4C program.


Since 1997, Thinking for a Change (T4C) has trained thousands of correctional staff to facilitate offender groups, and interest in adopting this evidence-based cognitive behavior program continues to grow.   The Thinking for a Change curriculum uses as its core, a problem solving component, embellished by both cognitive restructuring and social skills interventions. It was developed to be appropriate for a wide-range of offender groups, and has been implemented in all phases of the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems.
