Information about the program. What is it about?
MRT is a cognitive-behavioral counseling program that combines education, group, and individual counseling, and structured exercises designed to foster moral development and reasoning in clients. By use of interactive group sessions and homework assignments, MRT seeks to move clients from hedonistic reasoning levels to levels where concern for social rules and others becomes important. MRT typically takes 16-36 group sessions to complete. The length of the program will vary amongst each person depending on how long it takes to pass all 12 steps.
How do I sign Up?
