en Limba Engleză Carte Hardback – 26 Jun 2015
This book presents Responsible Adult Culture (RAC), a truly comprehensive program for helping offenders to think and act responsibly. It provides the tools of the program with great clarity. In addition to exploring the needs of all offenders, the book addresses the special needs of both female and dual-diagnosis offenders. Responsible thinking means habitually seeing others and situations accurately, rather than in self-serving and egocentrically distorted ways. Because self-centered thinking is typically reinforced by negative group norms, RAC starts with the cultivation of a constructive climate (“mutual help” groups) to motivate change. Motivated group members then gain tools for responsible thinking through “equipment” (cognitive behavioral) meetings. These tools pertain to social skills, anger management, and the correction of self-centered thinking through social perspective taking (cognitive restructuring). Beyond documented reductions in distorted thinking and recidivism rates, RAC’s synergy or round-the-clock interpenetration of positive groups and tools promotes a safer and more humane institutional culture.

Recenzii

“One of the most impressive of the moral development interventions that I have encountered . . . A moral education miracle. I believe that this book represents the best approach to corrections available.  The authors genuinely care for and respect adult offenders. . . . They appeal to the staff’s intelligence and good will without indulging in the jargon that one finds in many “therapeutic” books and manuals.'' — F. Clark Power, Professor, University of Notre Dame
