Cognitive Intervention Transition Program
The mission of the Cognitive Intervention Transition Program is to prepare offenders for the transition from restrictive housing to general population.
The Cognitive Intervention Transition Program (CITP) is a method to assist offenders in their transition to the General Population environment. The four (4) month process involves three (3) phases and entails a period of acclimation to having a cellmate as well as various program components to improve functioning in areas including emotional balance, beliefs, thinking patterns, life and coping skills, problem solving, and building/maintaining appropriate and healthy relationships. Participants are exposed to in cell and out of cell opportunities to develop skills and increase their knowledge base. Classroom, individual and small group interventions are utilized to aid in re-acclimation to the general population environment.
