Group Interventions

UCCI offers implementation support on evidence-informed group curricula  developed both here at UC as well as others commonly used in the field. Our well versed team includes practitioners and applied experts from a variety of settings, with experience facilitating and training others to facilitate these group interventions. To best insure programs are used with fidelity, facilitator training is required prior to implementation.

UCCI Curricula 

In line with our mission, UCCI works closely with content experts to develop and refine a series of Cognitive-Behavioral Intervention (CBI) curricula, and offer agencies to freely adopt our approaches. After being trained to facilitate our curriculum, corrections professionals are permitted to reproduce and photocopy materials needed for individual participation without paying UC ongoing licensing costs.

Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions - Core Adult  (CBI-CA)

This curriculum is designed to provide a thorough intervention that broadly targets all criminogenic needs for adult populations. Additionally, it provides modifications so that individuals with mental illness can participate, though it is not dedicated exclusively to this population. 

Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions - Core Youth (CBI-CY)

This curriculum is designed to provide a thorough intervention that broadly targets all criminogenic needs for juvenile populations. Additionally, it provides modifications so that youth with mental illness can participate, though it is not dedicated exclusively to this population. 

“The curriculum allows youth to focus in on strategies to enhance emotion regulation and is the perfect combination of identifying/ responding to high risk situations. One of our (individuals) currently in the program stated and I quote “I like the we don’t just learn one skill and move on, we learn more that work with the same problem so that if one way doesn’t work maybe the other will. I also like the role plays because it shows me how to do the steps in real situations.”

Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions - Employment  (CBI-EMP)

This curriculum emphasizes approaches to manage risky behavior and thoughts within the workplace by integrating cognitive-behavioral interventions with more traditional employment approaches.  

Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions - Sexual Offending (CBI-SO)

This curriculum is a structured curriculum intended for individuals who are moderate to high need in the area of sexual offending and related behaviors. 

"The CBI-SO curriculum is much needed! During the training, I was encouraged to expand and really understand concepts in depth."

Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions - Substance Use (CBI-SU)

This curriculum is designed for individuals that are moderate to high need in the area of substance use, is well suited for justice populations, and provides separate versions for both adults and youth.

"The CBI-SU curriculum was very easy to follow and understand. The training consists of great activities to engage clients in the way they think/behave."

Cognitive-Behavioral Interventions - Advanced Practice (CBI-AP)

This curriculum is designed to allow for increased dosage by incorporating more advanced practice for different need areas, and should be provided after individuals progress through foundational cognitive-behavioral programming. 

Other Curriculum
