Moral Reconation Therapy
MRT ® or,
Moral Reconation Therapy is an "evidence based" recovery program that uses group cognitive therapy to build the moral principles within an individual's personality that are damaged or have never fully developed. MRT focuses on seven basic treatment issues in a systematic, progressive fashion. These are:
- Confrontation of beliefs, attitudes and behaviors;
- assessment of current relationships;
- reinforcement of positive behavior and habits;
- positive identity formation;
- enhancement of self-concept;
- decrease in hedonism and development of frustration tolerance;
- and development of higher stages of moral reasoning.
MRT is a state-of-the-art cognitive behavioral rehabilitation system that has shown substantial effectiveness in significantly reducing offender’s recidivism over the ten years following program participation. MRT® was specifically designed to treat offenders in open-ended groups where offenders can enter at any time and work at their own pace. Moral Reconation Therapy is not a classroom style educational class where all participants receive the same sequence of educational materials, cognitive skills classes, or other information at the same time. Rather, it is a cognitive restructuring approach designed to allow group participants to enter ongoing groups at any time, begin the treatment process, and process exercises and tasks sequentially in the ongoing group process. This procedure facilitates the change process, enhances the group process, and allows for continuation of ongoing groups.
Each client participant will receive a personal copy of the MRT® workbook, How To Escape Your Prison, (@a cost of $30.00 per workbook.) This workbook contains all client exercises, materials, and tasks clients complete in the program as well as containing the client’s personal “Step Checklist.”
How To Escape Your Prison is written on the sixth grade level. There is also How To Escape Your Prison: Juvenile MRT that presents the same curriculum at a third grade level.
Also available, are MRT® non-offenders Program, (and workbook entitled "Discovering Life and Liberty) and MRT® Smokers Cessation program (and workbook entitled "Dying for a Smoke.")
