Responsible Thinking Program
Satisfy a Court Order or take for Educational purposes. Court Ordered Classes offers "in-person" Responsible Thinking Programs. These courses focus on critical thinking skills that can be developed with frequent practice and the use of ill-structured problems and situations that require the ability to recall useful knowledge quickly, use pattern recognition, discern pertinent information, think ahead, and anticipate outcomes and problems while remaining composed so that emotions do not hinder decisionmaking skills.This program can provide you with the tools for coping with your addiction that will last a lifetime. These online courses allow you to learn the same tools as our "in-person" classes but in a low-stress, convenient, well thought, affordable and self paced environment.

Intervention in the Justice System
Corrective Thinking Training, a cognitive-behavioral intervention, is often used to address delinquency. It is intended to help individuals develop more responsible thinking. An experimental study was conducted to evaluate the impact of Corrective Thinking Training on the self-reported level of responsible thinking of at-risk adults and youths. The How I Think (HIT) Questionnaire was administered to the control and an experimental group prior to the implementation of the Corrective Thinking Training and again after the training was provided. Information on the frequency of arrests and criminal behavior was also obtained pre- and post-test. All participants who received the Corrective Thinking Training showed some improvement in their level of responsible thinking. The experimental group reported no arrests while participating in the training, whereas 25% of those in the control group were arrested during this same time period.
This Program was created as a truly comprehensive program for helping offenders to think and act responsibly. It provides the tools of the program with great clarity. In addition to exploring the needs of all offenders, the program addresses the needs of both female and dual-diagnosis offenders. Responsible thinking means habitually seeing others and situations accurately, rather than in self-serving and egocentrically distorted ways. Because self-centered thinking is typically reinforced by negative group norms, our program starts with the cultivation of a constructive climate (“mutual help” groups) to motivate change. Motivated group members then gain tools for responsible thinking through “equipment” (cognitive behavioral) meetings. These tools pertain to social skills, anger management, and the correction of self-centered thinking through social perspective taking (cognitive restructuring). Beyond documented reductions in distorted thinking and recidivism rates, Court Ordered Programs' synergy or round-the-clock interpenetration of positive groups and tools promotes a safer and more humane institutional culture.
Following Proof of Enrollment appearances, defendants appear before the same Court for progress reports at intervals to be delivered by the Court. Please remember that Court Ordered Classes provides both you and the Court with Proof of Enrollment and Progress Reports for all of our enrolled Cognitive / Responsible Thinking class participants. (The first progress report appearance is 28 days after enrollment; subsequent appearances are at the Court’s discretion, and depend on the quality of the defendant’s progress.)
During the Cognitive / Responsible Thinking Program progress report hearings, there is sincere interchange between the Court and defendant. Good progress is always positively reinforced directly by the Court. Poor performance is negatively reinforced in various ways, ranging from verbal admonishment to incarceration. Progress report materials for the Court’s consideration include written reports from the treatment providers and written reports from the probation officer.
Once again, Court Ordered Classes, upon participant request can provide the Probation Officer, along with the Court, Proof of Enrollment and Progress Reports for all of our enrolled Cognitive / Responsible Thinking Program class participants.
Responsible Thinking Program
5 Star Domestic Violence Program
The classes were easy to understand and follow along and convenient. The employees were easy to work with. I highly recommend to everyone who's interested in bettering themselves and their relationships. The live in-person sessions were meaningful as a result of the director's guidance and the candid sharing throughout the group. I believe everyone can benefit from this Course as it has instructed that no one is perfect and there is always a better, more knowledgeable self that can be attained with some instruction, enlightenment, and active participation and engagement.
Very Informational, Easy to Use + Nice Staff
Thank goodness for courtorderedclasses.com! I highly recommend anyone in need of almost any class for either court or personal reasons to use them. I learned a lot, and it wasn't like super boring like some would think. I actually learned quite a bit about my topic and about myself. I also really loved that you can do it at your own pace at whatever time is most convenient for you. The site was also very user friendly. Thanks again, you guys are great!
This program was excellent. I was able to do it like a regular in person program which is just as well ..... There was no prejudgement made by courtorderedclasses staff. Classes were well constructed and the facilitators of the live group sessions were very knowledgeable and involved the participants in discussions.
High Intensity Parenting
You do not need a court order to take this course. I recommend it for parents going through a hostile divorce. It shows how easily kids can be adversely affected beyond just the action of the divorce itself but in how the parents handle the process. Some of the ways of mishandling it such that it hurts the kids are obvious, but some are not and quite helpful to take into account.
Perfect Fit For a Busy Schedule
After having searched for months to find a course local to me I was still unsuccessful. A friend found Court Ordered Classes and told me about it. The classes were a pot on and followed exactly the same guidelines as the ones I was taking previously. The staff is great and very attentive. The ability to do the classes online meant I could meet requirements and not have to miss work.... I hope everyone takes away as much as I have from this course.
COC Saved My Life
