Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)
MRT is a work book-based peer group program, originally developed for use in prisons. Group participants move up a ladder of self-knowledge and decision-making, starting by learning honesty with themselves and others, moving to a more positive and productive self-image and, eventually, to a state of well-being that includes caring for others.
To assure a consistent pool of trained MRT facilitators, Partners for Progress organizes annual training of MRT facilitators in Alaska. The training is usually led by the co-creator of MRT, Dr. Ken Robinson. This cognitive-behavioral program is on the SAMHSA (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.
