Description

Rossie Young People’s Trust are teaming up with The Cognitive Centre to host a 4 day training event based around 4 key programmes of interventions with young people – Offending Is Not The Only Choice, Violence is Not the Only Choice, Substance Abuse Is Not The Only Choice and the Ross Programme for low level offending. At the end of the four days, successful participants will be issued a certificate and be able to deliver any of the programmes with immediate effect.

The event starts Monday 23rd October and runs until Thursday 26th October from 09.30-1630 each day.

The 4 day training is at a cost of £500 plus booking fee and delegates must attend all 4 days to complete.

The cost includes training, refreshments, lunch and course materials for all 4 days.

This is a unique opportunity to be trained up in 4 stand-alone programmes – each of which would normally entail a four day training course.

This means delegates will save £1500!

More information on the 4 programmes are below.


Offending Is Not The Only Choice - Revised (2002)

Substance Abuse Is Not The Only Choice

Violence Is Not The Only Choice

Dr Barbara Armstrong developed this suite of programmes which has been effectively implemented in several countries. They can be delivered together in sequence or can stand alone. The philosophy behind these cognitive behavioural programmes is -

  • to assist participants to understand the direct link between the ways that they think and the way that they behave.
  • to assist the participants to understand and accept that their behaviour is their responsibility.
  • to assist the participants develop awareness of the impact of their behaviour on others.
  • to identify areas where the participants engage in harmful behaviour to self and others and teach relevant skills to manage ,eliminate or reduce harm.
  • to practice self-management skills.
  • to develop appropriate relapse prevention strategies.

The programmes are developed to tackle difficult learning styles typified as having a visual concrete base and therefore require:

  • a programme which is also interactive
  • the promotion of over learning
  • the use of repetition and requires cognisance of short learning spans.

Dependant on the focus of the programme each tackles some key issues in context-

Feelings, thoughts and behaviours about anti social behaviours

  • empathy
  • self management
  • self control
  • pro criminal affiliations.

The Ross Programme (R&R2)

This is a very focused twelve-session programme, based on the latest research and designed to lead to further assessment. It is an example of the new generation of interventions currently being introduced by the Cognitive Centre. In 2002 the Centre, in response to requests from Managers and Practitioners operating in Youth and Juvenile Justice settings, commissioned Professor Robert Ross to develop a short intervention programme aimed specifically at the 13-16 years age group who are assessed at low or moderate risk of re-offending or likely to exhibit anti-social behaviour.

The programme comprises twelve 90-minute sessions and its development was based on relevant research in the field over the past 35 years and particularly on a number of significant developments in research on pro-social competence. The whole theoretical basis of the intervention is reviewed in "Time to Think Again" (in print) by Dr Ross.

The Programme has been designed "as an introductory programme for adolescents who lack essential pro-social skills and values and are engaging in various disruptive and anti-social behaviours at home, in school or in the community. It provides a core curriculum, cognitive and emotional skills and values". (Ross R. R.) This programme is being used in a range of settings, in community educational and residential settings including main stream schools for use with disruptive pupils

The targets of the programme relate to:

  • Skilled thinking
  • Managing thoughts and emotions
  • Problem identification and thinking of solutions
  • Detecting thinking errors
  • Consequential thinking
  • Values enhancement
  • Managing conflict

The underpinning skills relate to

  • Motivational interviewing (Prochaska & Norcross 1999)
  • Making Good (Maruna 2001)
  • Pro-social modelling (Trotter 2000)
  • Thinking skills (de Bono 2000)
  • Relapse Prevention (Marshall 1998)
