Overview

Thinking for a Change (T4C) is a cognitive-behavioral program sponsored by the National Institute of Corrections (NIC).

The program is conducted by trained corrections professionals in prisons, jails, detention centers, community corrections, probation, and parole settings. There are over 10,000 T4C group facilitators and more than 500 trainers are certified to train additional staff to facilitate the program.
