Understanding Your Feelings — symptom-focused education; links feelings with past substance abuse and relapse. These materials are particularly useful in moving from "contemplation of change" to "preparation for change." [more]
Self-Awareness — these workbooks provide basic vocabulary for substance abuse treatment. Explains typical patterns of dependencies and relapse. Guides clients to examine past use and stages in personal relapse “cycle.” Clients identify vulnerabilities, specific triggers to past difficulties, and “stinking thinking” (about self, about other people, not being realistic, negative thinking about the future, etc.). Clients describe how feelings of discomfort have been dealt with, how isolation may have been a contributing factor in past difficulties, typical patterns of “build up” toward relapse, the need for control of uncomfortable feelings, and steps taken in the past to achieve that feeling of control, and how they began to plan or “set themselves up” for relapse. Additionally, clients describe the specific temptations experienced in various categories, their most common harmful behaviors or dependencies, their thinking, feelings, and behavior after relapse, and issues resulting from relapse.

Functional Thinking — the underlying principles in the Insight and Outlook resources include many elements of CBT. This set of resources, however, addresses the critical elements of CBT and can be viewed as a "Core CBT" resource. This element also integrates Motivational Interviewing (MI) tools into the actual program materials. This allows program staff to readily use MI/MET with the program participants. "Change talk" is elicited, and materials are sequenced to link to the stages of change model (Prochaska and DiClemente). [more]
Identifying and Changing Your Stinking Thinking — Cognitive restructuring based on identifying and addressing specific areas of "stinking thinking" (cognitive distortions). These materials are particularly useful in the middle stages of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and personal change programs. [more]
Finding Your Direction — designed for use in the middle portions of recovery and personal change programs, these materials provide support in cognitive and behavioral change (CBT) and personal growth. They help build motivation for lifestyle changes (MI/MET) and help indicate discrepancies between current behaviors and the achievement of desired life goals. Concepts include denial, self-inventories, multiple dependencies, controlling, and trust. [more]
Developing Insight — this series of short workbooks supplements the cognitive restructuring process (the middle stages of cognitive-behavioral therapy). The workbooks address specific thinking and behavioral issues that may be symptomatic of underlying vulnerabilities or cognitive distortions. This series of workbooks uses a guided format for addressing the thinking which underlies excessive behavior. [more]
Becoming a Stronger Person — designed for later portions of recovery programs (or aftercare settings/supportive maintenance); guides development of a new outlook by providing support in keeping life in balance, developing the strength to act appropriately, and developing a positive outlook for long-term recovery. These materials are designed to support cognitive-behavioral treatment (CBT) and the initial portions of the social learning approach, as well as the motivational enhancement (MI/MET) approach, guiding clients in the "action" stage of personal change. [more]
Coping Skills — behavioral change, relaxation training and other coping skills. Develops a comprehensive set of new behaviors and skills for people in recovery. The goal is development of "self-efficacy." These materials are designed to support the cognitive-behavioral and social learning models, and the motivational interviewing and motivational enhancement (MI/MET) approach, guiding clients in the “action” stage of personal change. [more]
Women's Issues — in addition to female gender-specific versions of many of the Insight and Outlook workbooks, we provide additional resources specifically designed for young women. These include workbooks, behavioral health treatment resources, and substance abuse curriculums. Supplemental topics include eating disorders, self-harm, relationships, prostitution, girls' gang issues, and women's self-esteem issues. [more]
Returning Home — short highly-interactive workbooks for "maintenance," community reintegration/reentry or aftercare programming. These materials are specifically designed to support the process of self-efficacy and the reduction of recidivism. 24 titles (more 120 hours) available. [more]
Pathways to Daily Living — Pathways to Daily Living and our Interpersonal Communications Skills programs include more than 100 one-hour life-skills lessons, with detailed lesson plans, client worksheets, and skill-building activities to create a complete Life Skills curriculum. They are supplemented by Problem Solving program resources, and the Vocational Training/Employment Preparation program. [more]
