Thinking for a Change Facilitator Program

Thinking for a Change (T4C) is an integrated cognitive behavioral change program authored by Jack Bush, Ph.D., Barry Glick, Ph.D., and Juliana Taymans, Ph.D., under a cooperative agreement with the National Institute of Corrections (NIC).

T4C incorporates research from cognitive restructuring

theory, social skills development, and the learning and use of problem solving skills.

T4C is comprised of 25 lessons that build upon each other, and contains appendices that can be used to craft an aftercare program to meet ongoing cognitive behavioral needs of offender groups.

Not all lessons can be completed in one session, so a typical delivery cycle may take 30 sessions.

Sessions should last between one and two hours.

Ideally, the curriculum is delivered two times per week, with a minimum recommended dosage of once per week and a maximum of three times per week.

Participants must be granted time to complete mandatory homework between each lesson.

The program is designed to be provided to correctional clients, adults and youth, males and females.

It is intended for groups of eight to twelve and should be delivered only by trained facilitators.

Due to its integrated structure, T4C is a closed group, meaning members need to start at the beginning of a cycle, and may not join the group mid-stream (lesson five is a logical cut-off point for new group members).
