R&R2 for Youths and Adults with

Mental Health Problems

 

R&R2 for Youths and Adults with Mental Health Problems (R&R2 MHP) is designed for adolescents (age 13+) and adults who have a history of antisocial behavior and have mental health problems or severe mental illness (schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, bipolar disorder, major depression and other non-toxic psychoses).

R&R2 MHP program is a 15 (ninety minute) session program which provides training techniques to target the cognitive, attitudinal, emotional and behavioral characteristics that are associated with antisocial behavior and mental illness. It includes a Neurocognitive Skills Module with emphasis on attentional and impulse control, memory, and constructive planning and modules which teach participants to deconstruct information, assumptions and preconceptions and reconstruct them in a prosocial and adaptive fashion.

R&R2 MHP includes individual sessions in which a member of staff meets with the participant between group sessions to reinforce their motivation and help them transfer the skills to their personal everyday life.

The program can be delivered in community-based educational, social service and health agencies or in probation, prison or hospital settings including secure psychiatric hospitals.

1. antisocial individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness in a psychiatric or correctional facility

2. antisocial individuals diagnosed with severe mental illness who are being managed by community social or forensic services

3. 'difficult to manage‘ youths and young adults who are transitioning from conduct disorder to severe mental illness (e.g. schizophrenia) and are being managed by social service agencies or general adult and/or adolescent psychiatric services

4. adolescents and adults in institutional or community settings who evidence antisocial behavior that is associated with mental health problems.

Summaries of controlled evaluations are presented in Evaluation. Published evaluation reports can be obtained from Dr. Susan Young who does the training for this program internationally: suzyyoung@aol.com
