Designed for medium to high-risk female offenders, the Adult Cognitive Life Skills for Women curriculum offers an extended and comprehensive educational process to help women overcome negative behavioral patterns, become self-reliant, and enable them to be more productive in their environment. Through activity enhanced components targeting criminogenic needs, women learn how to establish positive, goal-directed behavior patterns, and understand the process necessary to change negative behavior. The length of the curriculum allows for greater development of the participant/facilitator relationship, providing an additional support base for the participant.
