Purpose of Cognitive Skills Classes
- Cognitive Skills classes are designed to help offenders develop a personal plan to achieve their potential and become positive, law abiding, and contributing citizens in society.
- In addition, the classes allow participants to learn and practice life-skills, by increasing their self-confidence, and by identifying and cultivating lifetime patterns for self-improvement resulting in law-abiding behaviors.
- Lastly, the classes help offenders realize that their values, attitudes, and behaviors can affect other citizens and help them think through the choices they make turning them into positives.
