Cognitive Behavioral Intervention (CBI) Program

HVCS’ new Cognitive Behavioral Intervention program, known as CBI, operates inside and in partnership with Westchester County Jail. We provide a four-week interactive journaling group for inmates with high rates of recidivism, along with individual interventions and transitional planning. The program is open to incarcerated individuals and its overall goal is to reduce the rate of recidivism by helping inmates explore and sift through their past, learn and practice strategies for self-change. Participants learn how to challenge and change their self-talk and practice decision-making and problem-solving skills.
