Training Offers Clinical Skills

I have taken Truthought Training and as a psychiatrist and former HHS director it is my observation that whether staff have a GED or Ph.D. Truthought Training equips them with solid clinical skills.

— Seattle, WA

Truthought has a model that relates to all kinds of programs.

It helped me understand the learning styles of the antisocial. I liked the tactic interrupters, concept of the ripple effect and emphasis on paying attention to thoughts not feelings.

The progress has been incredible.

I supervise a high risk group of offenders. The Truthought Corrective Thinking Model we have used so far has worked better than I ever expected.

— Moose Lake, MN

As a former offender,

I am passionate about this curriculum and I believe 100% that this will work. My hope is that what I have learned will be accepted by all necessary staff.

My teenage son is ADHD

After Truthought Training when my son said he could not complete a school assignment, first he blamed the school, then the teacher, then his employer. But I continued to get to the bottom line using Truthought Tactic Interrupters. It was amazing. I watched him go from emotionally-drunk to thoughtfully-sober in less than 20 minutes.

— LaCrosse, WI

I have used the Truthought Model for over 5 years;

I have been exposed to many different types of programs that are supposed to help criminals change and become productive, but Truthought is the ONLY one that holds them accountable. Even those individuals who are court-ordered, do not want to change, and are just going through the motions seem to get something positive and lasting from the Truthought process.

— Cincinnati, OH

As Clinical Director of a large Multi-Service Organization,

I am at liberty to be creative with program implementation. Yet the Truthought Curriculum can be implemented at so many different levels across the various programs and with varying populations that I plan to have staff implement it across the organization.

— Seattle, WA

A Truthought Culture

I work with a group of 8-12 yr olds and a group of 13-17 yr olds. It is said that in our day treatment you cannot tell when therapy ends and academic classes begin. The kids are really getting therapy all day because the Truthought model has allowed us to develop that culture seamlessly across all classes and activities.

Not One Truthought Student Has Come through The Prison!

Working for a prison is so different than public school and prior to that I worked at a home that used Boy’s Town Model. In 9 years at the prison I have seen every young man that was at that home come through the halls of this prison, but not one of our TruThought school students. As a matter of fact, several have stayed in touch through social media and keep me informed of their successes!

I had to go or grow!

My lifestyle had been a choice since I was 6 yrs old. My daughter became a victim of my lifestyle. At age 37 I had managed to stop using drugs. How to change was quite another thing. A year later my daughter was killed by a drunk driver. The next year was my turning point. I had to grow or go. I chose to grow. What I thought would help didn’t. I began to search for real solutions and came across Dr. Samenow’s work and then Truthought. Since then I opened a home for boys and we graduate most of them. Thanks for the most realistic approach that helped me and now helps my boys. It works!

— Visalia, CA

Even with Covid Challenges!

We currently have over 250 men attending classes daily. We are teaching Truthought’s Charting a New Course, Tackling Tactics, and The Road Ahead for those with parole dates approaching. We are hearing comments such as, “I have learned how to stop and think before I react,” and ” I do not think like I used to.” Behavior problems have declined significantly over the past several months. I could go on about many more of the positive changes and good reports from our men.

Posters Speak!

One of our folk asked to talk to me and I said he had to wait for others who were already in line. 40 minutes later I asked him to come in and he said “No, I want to show you something.” He pointed to the poster, Barriers in Thinking, and said, “I’ve got every one of those. Its’ driving me crazy and ruining my life… How do I stop it?” I pointed to the Responsible Thinking Poster and he said he hadn’t gotten that far yet. I gave him a Pocket Coach and invited him to the classes for just that thing. He is anxious to get started!
