Correctional Counseling, Inc., offers evidence-based programming that increases accountability for offenders, provides insight into why individuals may have acted violently, and assist in confronting those tendencies in current situations. The programs are founded on a cognitive behavioral programming called Moral Reconation Therapy™ (MRT). The MRT-based domestic violence materials are tailored specifically for those who commit domestic violence.
The domestic violence program is divided in 24 modules with each module completed in a group setting. Clients complete coursework for each module prior to attending a session. In group, each client will present his or her work to the course facilitator who will pass the client to the next module or have the client repeat the lesson based on objective criteria. All DV MRT groups are open-ended, meaning new clients may enter an ongoing group at any time.
