Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)

A treatment designed to confront criminal thinking patterns and teach clients to take accountability for their choices, MRT is perfect for anyone who tends toward strong thinking errors. These individuals tend to be very emotionally disconnected, or emotionally manipulative. The client who will most likely complete the treatment is one who has the motivation (i.e., court-appointed, or a spouse who may leave the relationship). MRT may be a good step for somebody starting treatment who is a “blamer” and does not see that they have any type of problem or does not have a goal for completing the therapy. Stage of change: Pre-contemplative, contemplative.
