NO LONGER AVAILABLE. RECOMMEND THIS ALTERNATIVE TITLE — WOMEN IN PRISON: PREPARING ON THE INSIDE FOR A NEW LIFE OUTSIDE (#8010)
By Marilyn Van Dieten, Ph.D.
#6368 Since 1995, the total number of female state and federal prison inmates has grown 5% each year. Since women tend to serve as family caregivers, and that their incarceration affects the entire household, this statistic has implications for our entire society.
This gender-specific program addresses many risk factors that can lead to a woman’s criminal behavior. It provides women with alternatives to criminal activity by helping them identify and mobilize personal and community resources. Moving On:
- Is a flexible, open-ended intervention program that allows continuous intake
- Draws on the evidence-based treatment models of relational theory and cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Can be administered to groups or individuals in community corrections as well as institutional settings
- Can be delivered in as little as nine or as many as 13 weeks
Program content is organized around four main themes:
- Encouraging personal responsibility and enhancing motivation for change
- Expanding connections and building healthy relationships
- Skill enhancement, development, and maintenance
- Relaxation and stress management skills
The complete Moving On program includes six modules delivered in five facilitator’s guides, a CD-ROM containing the program manual and all reproducible handouts, and one DVD featuring real Moving On participants demonstrating the skills they learned in the program.
