For well over 15 years, NCTI has been actively involved in the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA). Through this association, NCTI has earned a reputation for providing quality programs in collaboration with APPA.
“APPA will now be offering NCTI’s curricula to practitioners in the field of community corrections. This is a comprehensive array of cognitive-based life skills and offense-specific curriculum. These cognitive-based curricula clearly align with What Works research that has proven to be effective in reducing recidivism. Through this collaboration, APPA will be offering probation, parole, and private practitioners accredited certification training for facilitating cognitive behavioral groups using these powerful curricula.” said Carl Wicklund, Executive Director.
The American Probation and Parole Association is an international association composed of individuals from the United States and Canada actively involved with probation, parole and community-based corrections, in both adult and juvenile sectors. All levels of government including local, state/provincial, legislative, executive, judicial, and federal agencies are counted among its constituents. By taking the initiative, APPA has grown to become the voice for thousands of probation and parole practitioners including line staff, supervisors and administrators. educators, volunteers and concerned citizens with an interest in criminal and juvenile justice are also among APPA's members. APPA will continue to effectively provide services to its constituents. The association represents a strong, unified voice for the field of community corrections.
