Working with incarcerated populations can be an incredibly challenging endeavor, but with specific knowledge of language and ways they think, it can also be very rewarding. This course is intended to give you a clear understanding of ways in which incarcerated persons' thinking develops, continues, and results in antisocial behavior. The information is broken down into three sections. In the first section, you will be introduced to criminal thinking, and the eight styles of thinking that support criminal behavior. Next, we will focus on treatment approaches, and specific interventions for each of the eight thinking styles. Through interactive lessons and descriptive examples, you will learn specific interventions to help make you more effective in your work with incarcerated individuals. This training is appropriate for all clinical and intervention specialists working with corrections populations.
