Interactive Learning: The Key to Successful Behavior Change
How an idea is presented is just as important as the concept, as poor presentation can make even the most interesting subject dull. So, it follows that when conducting training programs, the presentation techniques are critical to its success or failure.
All NCTI programs are presented in a group process format, proven one of the most effective vehicles for achieving behavior change. Instead of being an observer with minimal participation, individuals are actively involved throughout the process
Our presentation techniques have been highly successful with adult and juvenile offenders in the Criminal Justice system. Programs are presented in an interactive format that includes such techniques as carefully sequenced questions, pairing and small group discussions, role-playing, brainstorming, simulation, reflection, and situational application of skills.
The facilitator coordinates the interaction, guiding and encouraging the participants to be more supportive, to contribute their ideas and feelings, and to commit to the skill development at hand.
This learning process is fluid in nature, molding to the specific needs of each group, while also addressing the needs of the individuals. This fosters the discovery and practice of new skills, as well as providing support and feedback from peers.
