Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)
MRT addresses beliefs and reasoning. It is a systematic, step-by-step group counseling treatment approach for treatment-resistant clients. The program is designed to alter how clients think and make judgments about what is right and wrong.
The MRT system approaches the problem of treating resistant populations as a problem of low levels of moral reasoning. In this case, “moral” does not refer to a religious concept, but rather the theoretical conceptualization of psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg. Moral reasoning represents how a person makes decisions about what he or she should or should not do in a given situation. MRT has shown to reduce the recidivism rate of offenders by between 30% and 50% for periods up to 20 years after release.
All sessions begin promptly at their scheduled time. Students are required to be on time. There are no exceptions to this. Once a session begins the doors will be locked and any student who did not arrive on time will be required to re-register and repay to attend a new course date.
The cost for each MRT session is $20 and each student is required to have their own textbook which costs $25.00
