New Ways of Thinking

This is a unique initiative which offers a core programme incorporating key elements of best practise to challenge anti-social behaviour. Added to this are tailored modules which can be designed to your specification.

The final package can be aimed at addressing the needs of any specific client groups or individuals (ensuring issues of diversity and need are met), whilst taking into account your operational requirements as the provider.

The core programme

This will incorporate key elements from effective practice, drawn from:

  • Cognitive skills training
  • Motivational enhancement approaches
  • Rational Emotive Behaviour therapy

The aim is to provide a more holistic approach that focuses on cognitive, affective and behavioural change. Around this basic core element it is possible to develop a programme which not only addresses the needs of the client group, but can be tailored to the specific provider's budget, to offer a cost-effective value-for-money intervention.
