Using Cognitive-Based Communication Skills with Individuals on Supervision
Using Cognitive-Based Communication Skills with Individuals on Supervision

Community supervision officers are tasked with helping the people they supervise make positive changes in their behavior. Many people under supervision are reluctant to change their behavior. Further, many of the individuals under supervision justify their behavior through antisocial thinking patterns. As a supervision officer, you have a responsibility to help someone through the behavioral change process by challenging and helping them change the way they think and act. Using cognitive-based approaches in your everyday communication with the people you supervise can increase their responsiveness to your supervision efforts, improve their chance of success under supervision, and reduce their likelihood of committing new crimes. The goal of this course is to provide probation and parole staff working in adult community supervision agencies with information on common thinking errors, how antisocial thinking patterns drive criminal behavior, and cognitive-based communication skill strategies to improve interpersonal communication skills.
