The CriminalThinking.net author, Brian Loebig, stated, "supporting organizations who request use of the material has led to unique partnerships that support the recovery and change of this challenging population of clients." TASC, Treatment Alternatives for Safe Communities, based in Chicago, IL, is working in collaboration with CriminalThinking.net to develop a"First Responders" training guide to help non-therapeutic staff understand and support thinking change programs that are active in their facilities.
The CriminalThinking.net site has been developed collaboratively by practitioners, in the corrections and substance abuse treatment fields, who have offered content, recommended links, suggested improvements and provided information. All primary material is provided free of charge. Supplemental materials are offered for a fee and help with the development and creation of new materials on the site.
