Our resources address the most critical personal, environmental, and community risk factors, and build on the most important protective factors and assets. The workbooks are easy to implement by professionals, paraprofessionals, and others. These workbooks assist staff and clients in identifying specific issues and developing concrete alternatives. We also provide "program start-up" activities appropriate to different age groups, and certain workbooks are also provided in elementary, middle school, and high school-aged versions — as well as for adult men and women.
All of our materials are provided under our site license arrangement, allowing unlimited photocopying for use in programs conducted at the designated facility or site. Costs are calculated by multiplying the total program hours selected by our $35 per program hour cost. Thus, a 50-hour program would cost $1750, including the site license and two sets of materials. For reference, each program hour is typically 5-7 workbook pages. All material costs include lesson plans and similar resources for program staff. The above illustrates costs for one typical site. For multiple sites, smaller sites, or significantly larger purchases, please contact us for pricing options
Insight and Outlook is a resource dedicated to supporting programs and facilities in a very cost-effective manner, and are happy to partner with agencies of targeted programs. Our resources are especially affordable, as we provide each site or propram with a site license allowing you the rights to make unlimited copies for use at that designated location. You can buy them with this year's funds and use them for years. We are happy to provide specific quotations and provide program models and samples. For more detailed information, please contact us.
Substance Abuse Treatment & Recovery Support Resources — workbooks and other curriculums are based on cognitive-behavioral (CBT), motivational interviewing/motivational enhancement (MI/MET), risk factors management, relapse prevention, and social learning treatment concepts. This means that participants are guided to identify thinking issues (including criminal thinking) underlying their past behavior. Following this, they are guided to a new understanding of these issues, their feelings, and the ways in which their own thoughts have set them up for more problems. After this cognitive work, participants are taught new ways of stopping old harmful behaviors and using new coping skills. Successful management of individual-specific risk factors is a critical part of relapse prevention in community-based and institutional programs. We also provide highly effective male and female juvenile programs. Correctional research shows decreases in recidivism of more than 50%. [more]
