    Our software solutions, including a behavior management system and interactive, fillable tools, are designed to motivate clients and assist staff with case management.

    4:1 Behavior Management System

    As agencies across the country work to improve outcomes, an area of increasing interest is the encouragement of prosocial behavior and the prevention and management of noncompliant (violation) behavior. With the touch of a button, staff can generate reports reflecting the history of a person’s behavior—both prosocial and noncompliant—over any specified period of time, along with responses to this behavior and a calculation of the ratio of prosocial to noncompliant responses.

    8 Key Skills to Success Poster

    The 8 Keys to Success Skills Poster uses strength-based language to translate each criminogenic need into a “key to success” (such as "Live a Sober Lifestyle" and "Maintain Healthy and Supportive Family Relationships"). It also identifies skills that are essential to success in each area and suggests strategies that staff can use to help people build these skills.

    Goal Appointment Cards

    One-on-one interactions are most likely to result in prosocial behavior change when they are focused on people’s criminogenic needs and on the skills people need to be successful in their day-to-day lives. The Goal Appointment Cards help provide that focus.

    Thinking for a Change (T4C) Skill Reinforcement Manual

    Staff can help people integrate the concepts and skills they learn in T4C by practicing prosocial skills together, reinforcing these skills when they are observed, and encouraging their use when they are not.  To do so, staff need to know what people are learning in T4C week by week. This manual provides an overview of the 25 lessons contained in version 3.1 of the T4C curriculum.
