Moral Reconation Therapy, MRT® is the premiere Cognitive-Behavioral program for offender populations and only trained and certified MRT facilitators are permitted to conduct these highly effective and specialized groups.
Most of the Good Success services and interventions we offer are based on the Cognitive-Behavioral Model (CBT), and utilize Evidenced-Based Cognitive-Behavioral treatment materials — specifically, MRT®.
MRT® has been included in SAMHSA's National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices. It is the premiere cognitive-behavioral program for substance abuse treatment and offender populations, including parole and probation settings, outpatient programs, educational settings and drug courts.
It was developed in 1985 by Dr. Gregory Little and Dr. Kenneth Robinson, and over 120 published outcomes have documented that MRT®-treated offenders show significantly lower recidivism for periods as long as 10-years after treatment.
The approach leads to increased participation rates, increased program completion rates, decreased disciplinary infractions, and beneficial changes in personality characteristics. All MRT® groups must be operated by MRT®-certified facilitators -- professional staff who complete 32-hour training.
Definition of MRT®
The term moral refers to moral reasoning level based on Kohlberg's levels of cognitive reasoning. The word reconation comes from the psychological terms conative and conation, which refer to the process of making conscious decisions. MRT® is a cognitive-behavioral system that leads to enhanced moral reasoning, better decision making, and more appropriate behavior.
