"I found the course extremely interesting. The trainer was knowledgeable and was able to go into more depth following our own responses. I found it a very relaxed atmosphere and there was no pressure put on us. I wanted to gain more skills in order to better deal with challenging and working with offending behaviour and I feel I have attained that. Thank you."

Clare Lewis, DIP Worker

It is also handy to be given a lovely handout that helped us to concentrate on the topic during the day and not feeling like I needed to write down the content to remind me later, and of course a lovely lunch."

Melissa Baxter, Drugs Worker

Working with Offenders

A CBT Approach to Working with Offenders.

A 3-day course. (2-day and online versions also available.)

A CBT Approach to Working with Offenders gives a clear framework in which to analyse and work with most offenders.

It is an approach that is increasingly being recognised as giving very good results when well delivered. An underlying principle is that the offenders' behaviour (like that of everyone) depends largely on the five Be-BEST factors involved in modern Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. If we can change those factors then we can usually also change the offending. This course aims to provide those working with offenders with sufficient knowledge of a cognitive approach to enable them to apply it safely to their caseload.
