Webinar to Discuss Cognitive Behavioral Approaches Across Custody Settings

May 9, 2014

NCYC logoOJJDP logoOn May 28, 2014, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. ET, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention in collaboration with the OJJDP National Center for Youth in Custody will present "Cognitive Behavioral Approaches," the second Webinar in the series "What Works: A Practitioner’s Response to Evidence and Theory." Cognitive behavioral approaches come from two separate psychological theories: cognitive theory says that the way someone thinks will determine their behavior; behavioral theory says that the environment in which a person finds him or herself also affects behavior. The examples presented in this Webinar will illustrate the blending of cognitive and behavioral theories resulting in effective practice across custody settings. Panelists will share the principles specific to their cognitive behavioral theory approach and how they effectively implemented the approach in juvenile detention, corrections, and adult facilities responsible for youth offenders.
