A 6 HOUR TRAINING EVENT ON June 27, 2018

at NHADACA, 130 Pembroke Road, Suite 100, Concord, NH
PRESENTATION: How can people who do terrible things consider themselves good? These individuals show a lack of remorse or little regard for others, respond angrily to anything interpreted as opposing what he or she wants, lack personal responsibility and exercise power in doing the forbidden and getting away with it. Criminals consider themselves decent people with the right to do whatever suits their purpose but what if it interferes with those who are law abiding and responsible? During this course, participants will be introduced to specific thinking patterns that underlie criminal behavior patterns for justice involved clients. The use of evidenced based practices in assessment and treatment planning will be covered as well as how to deal specifically with these behaviors in criminal justice settings. Methods of instruction will include discussion, video, case studies and experiential role plays.
As a result of attending this training the participant will be able to:
• Identify maladaptive thinking patterns that are prevalent with the justice involved offender that perpetuates criminal and anti-social actions.
• Understand specific criminal thinking patterns and identify how to respond to criminal thinking statements in a manner that avoids confrontation and resistance.
• Define antisocial personality disorder and analyze theories associated with criminal offending.
• Evaluate and identify evidenced based research in assessments and treatment planning for those with criminal thinking patterns and cognitive distortions.
• Develop learned techniques using experiential role plays that will help in dealing with justice involved individuals with criminal thinking patterns.
