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 has been evidenced to reduced recidivism and incorporates research from cognitive restructuring theory, social skills development, and the learning and use of problem-solving skills. The program is designed to be provided to offender populations - adults and youth, male/female - and ​is comprised of 25 lessons that build upon each other. It also contains appendices that can be used to craft an aftercare program to meet the ongoing cognitive behavioral needs of group participants. Read more about T4C.

Motivational Interviewing (MI) is an evidence-based guiding style of communication and is used to help individuals to discover their own motivation to change about any particular area in their life. It is used with individuals who are ambivalent about change and it reduces communication roadblocks between the helper and the individual. MI can be applied to a variety of settings, such as addictions, healthcare, corrections, coaching, social services and the workplace.

This e-learning training includes 6-hours of live interactive virtual sessions over the course of four sessions and two weeks and 6-hours of independent study to be completed between sessions, including: assigned reading, quizzes and reflective practice. Participants will explore the spirit of motivational interviewing (partnership, acceptance, compassion and evocation) as well core skills that are used to support individuals in a productive and collaborative way, who are ambivalent about a change goal. This training does not include coaching or the supervised practice of skills. This is for beginners who are seeking to understand and explore an alternative style of communicating when helping an individual to strengthen their personal motivation for and commitment to a specific change goal.
