Published by Mustafa Šuvalija
This publication, Cognitive-Behavioral Treatment: A Review and Discussion for Corrections Professionals, offers corrections personnel with various responsibilities an in-depth explanation of what CBT is and how it is being implemented in prisons and jails across the country. It explores the history and philosophies underlying CBT and gets right to the “nuts and bolts” of several promising CBT treatment programs. Users of this publication—from administrators to treatment professionals—will gain an understanding of what CBT can bring to their corrections facilities whether they have already implemented such a program and want to refine it or if they are just starting the process of determining which program might best meet their needs. The decision to include the six cognitive-behavioral treatment programs chosen for this publication was based on a focused literature review of cognitive-behavioral treatments for individuals involved in the criminal justice system (see References section of this report). The review showed these to be some of the prominently discussed, implemented, and researched CBT programs used in correctional settings throughout the United States. These programs are not to be taken as exhaustive of effective CBT treatments for correctional clients, nor are they ranked in any order of impact on recidivism or number of clients served.
