Functional Thinking

Part of our comprehensive workbook series, the underlying principles in these resources include many elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). The Functional Thinking set of resources, however, addresses the critical elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and can be viewed as a core cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) resource. This element also integrates Motivational Interviewing (MI) tools into the actual program materials. This allows program staff to readily use MI with the program participants. "Change talk" is elicited, and materials are sequenced to link to the stages of change model (Prochaska and DiClemente).

These materials can be used in whole or in part to create a customized age- and gender-specific treatment program for adult males, juvenile males, adult females, and juvenile females.
