THIS GROUP CAN BE ATTENDED AS PART OF THE EOP PROGRAM
CONATION: A term derived from the philosopher Rene DeCartes to describe the point where body, mind and spirit are aligned in decision making. Reconation refers to altering the process of how decisions are made.
Moral reconation therapy, MRT, is a type of cognitive behavior treatment system that leads to enhanced moral reasoning, better decision making & more appropriate behavior. MRT seeks to decrease recidivism among both juvenile and adult criminal offenders by increasing moral reasoning; resetting the moral compass, if you will. MRT is systematic and implements a cognitive-behavioral approach, which positively addresses a client's ego, social, moral, and positive behavioral growth.
Moral Reconation Therapy, MRT, was selected for inclusion on the National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP) sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
MRT is typically conducted over 12 two hour sessions. Classes are weekly & typically conducted in a group setting. Individual moral reconation therapy (MRT) is available.
