The benefit to both approaches with The Power to Change for Corrections is that the sentenced and incarcerated will have Recovery International meetings in their communities to continue their life skills work following release or completion of the court-ordered program to reduce recidivism and future offenses resulting in court hearings.
Beyond its subtitle, The Power to Change for Corrections is a life skills program. Participants learn to take control of their lives, rather than be victims of events or of other people’s behavior. The underlying premise is that while individuals have little control over the events or people around them, they can control their own thoughts and impulses. Through ongoing training and practice, they form new cognitive and behavioral habits that help them gain mastery over their angry or fearful reactions.
