MRT: Moral Reconation Therapy

MRT is a program that is intended to be used by substance abuse and offender populations. This program was made in 1985 by Dr. Gregory Little and Dr. Kenneth Robinson. Over 200 studies have been done showing that MRT is capable of decreasing recidivism significantly in offender’s populations even up to 20 years after the program is finished. MRT workbooks can handle a variety of different types of scenarios and people. Some of these include the following: adult & juvenile offenders, substance abusers, Veterans, trauma survivors, and many other populations.

MRT in its most basic form is a workbook with multiple steps that is completed by taking personal time to complete whatever is being asked for in each step. Each step is formulated in such a way to help the individual in the program recognize faulty patterns of thinking or actions being taken and upon making the issues known they are prompted to change these thought processes and actions via the steps upon which they are working.
