I have 9 yrs. experience in Criminal/Corrective Thinking and just found your site. I have been trained by Mr. Koerner, attending many of his trainings. He is/was an excellent trainer and in my view having attended other workshops in CT believe he was the most knowledgeable in the material. Please keep coming up with new material and ideas. Love your work and mine.
I work in a substance abuse treatment facility located in a county jail in S. Florida. We incorporate a "Boot Camp" discipline component and criminal thinking is, perhaps, the most important part of our treatment. Your site contains excellent information and concrete ideas that can really facilitate change in our clients. Thank you for making it available and keep up the good work.

Your site is great! I use the Criminal/Corrective Thinking process in my work everyday and your site has the most useful and well organized information available on the web. Keep up the good work!

I just wanted to say how much I appreciate the open rights on the CT tools. I'm a beginning DTP counselor in MO and as of now they don't have a standard curriculum for the criminal thinking class I'm teaching in a prison. your sight has helped me out immensely and I feel that you guys have contributed to possibly changing many men's lives. Keep up the good work.
Thank you for all of the information posted on your site. It is not only very useful, but your site is well organized and easy to navigate. I work in a residential treatment center for adolescents, all of whom have been diagnosed with mental illnesses. Many people think this material can only be used with offenders, but it is very beneficial to this population as well. Thanks again!
I used to work with Brian at LSS in Wisconsin! And to think now he has his own website! We've been using these materials for several years, it's great to have a web site to refer to for links, etc. Good work!
Hope you keep adding to your page. I just started working as an offender rehabilitation counselor. Our curriculum is based entirely on Yochelson and Samenow.
I work with corrections as a facilitator for a juvenile program which is based on cognitive restructuring, including using "thinking errors" with the kids to help them see how their thinking becomes "distorted" and can lead them to engage in risky behaviors. Thanks for your additional information!
I work in juvenile corrections (young women) and was introduced to these theories. This is a very nice site and I hope to see more.
I will keep an eye on the development of your site. I currently work as a prison psychologist.
Always in search of new ideas. I supervise a large ex offender program in a correctional setting, basing much on cognitive-behavioral and Samenow. Good work. Jim LaBundy, Farmington Correctional Center, in Farmington, MO
I was amazed at your Criminal Thinking Therapy site, I am a Prison Officer in Scotland and I present Cognitive Skills to groups of prisoners. Every one of the excuses you listed in the first three sections I have heard, most in the last 2 days!! Any further info that you have would be gratefully received. Can you let me know when you have finished the site as the first 3 sections blew me away!!! All the best John Lister.
