MRT Training℠ & Services

MRT Learning Community

Once participants leave CCI’s Moral Reconation Therapy – MRT® training, they are faced with the challenge of stepping back into the “real world” to implement all they learned. To support implementation and fidelity efforts, CCI launched a Learning Community.

The Learning Community offers continuing education conference calls and webinars to better support facilitators as they move through program implementation.

Monthly Continuing Education Conference Calls

Monthly conference calls address both fidelity and implementation of the MRT program.

Fidelity Conference Calls

The fidelity conference calls allow for basic questions and provide answers for facilitators regarding step work for clients—what is acceptable and what is not. Participants receive “if-then” guidance from CCI’s clinical staff.

Implementation Conference Calls

The goal for the implementation conference calls is to help participants navigate some of the structural and staff barriers involved in implementing new programming. These barriers can include choosing a core group, deciding how often to meet, and much more. These calls also featured CCI’s clinical staff.

Webinars

With travel costs high and budgets being trimmed for many agencies, CCI has developed easy-to-attend (from a desktop) webinar series that will help participants learn or refine techniques in cognitive-behavioral therapy. The topics will be selected based on valuable feedback received in CCI’s client survey.

CCI is also working to bring future webinars that provide continuing education units (CEUs) for licensed staff.
