The Redemption Project is offering training, at no cost, to agencies that provide services to delinquent youth. Aggression Replacement Training/Character: Be About It is an evidence-based, cognitive behavioral, group intervention.
The program has four components:
- Skillstreaming teaches youth pro-social skills;
- Anger Control teaches self-regulation skills;
- Moral Reasoning teaches youth the purpose for using the newly learned skills; and
- Character: Be About It teaches youth about the 12 essential character traits that reinforce components of ART.
Agencies will be provided with a two-day clinical training, a one-day booster training, and training of agency trainers to promote sustainability of the intervention over time. All curriculum/materials will be provided. Agencies are responsible for providing a training site.
Interested agencies must submit a Letter of Interest, which must be on letterhead and have a contact person responsible for scheduling training. Please email Letters of Interest to Robert Oliver. If you have questions, please call Mr. Oliver at 814-397-6010.
