Decision Points

Decision Points (DP) is a cognitive-based program that develops cognitive skills and uses cognitive restructuring to bring awareness to the “traps” or offending behavior that can place participants into the “Trouble Cycle”. DP is led by two qualified Probation Officers trained in the curriculum. Utilizing role-play demonstrations and other interactive activities, participants will learn how to stop and use critical thinking skills before their actions place them in the vicious Trouble Cycle with more problems than when they started by addressing the 4 questions of Decision Points:

1. What am I thinking and feeling right now?

​2. Who else cares what I do right now?

​3. What could I do right now?

​4. What are some motivating thoughts?

​When: Once a week, Open-Ended, Two hour sessions (Times Vary)
