It includes critical overlays for self-injury and anger/aggression/violence, along with a comprehensive set of skills for interpersonal competence. An emphasis on Situational Confidence in facing high-risk situations addresses acting out behaviors, with specific tools including Situational Confidence Questionnaires.

—Designed initially to provide residentially-based cognitive behavioral therapy in mental observation
units at Rikerís Island Jails in NYC, this flexible, modular program offers a solid, CBT-based approach
for mentally ill participants, enhanced with selected Motivational Interviewing (MI) tools, DBT
elements, and critical coping skills.
The Bridge features a core of 40 sessions, divided into four 10-session units, and two 10-session mental health relapse prevention units for a total of 60 hours. An additional 12-session Managing Aggression and Violence element is also provided, making a program total of 72 hours of programming. Each themed unit provides a brief stages-of-change based approach, sequentially addressing precontemplation, contemplation, and key preparation/determination action steps. Shaped for this population, they provide structure for staff, address key treatment outcomes, and include summary elements within the curriculum to support program documentation. A critical advantage of this modular approach is that it provides a high quality outcome-focused resource without mandating a closed group programming model. This approach is designed to support both in-facility and community programming.
