Session 3: Green thoughts and goals. Positive self talk is explored in this session and the importance of goal setting and keeping goals in mind. We investigate what the YP’s aims of their offending were and then encourage them to identify what their true core long term goals are for themselves and ways of reaching them without getting into trouble. We explore the problems of immediate gratification where the short term good takes over the long term bad even though the long term bad is far worse. A game at the end of the session brings the self control module group sessions to an end with a bit of fun but also an important point about maintaining self control. Exercise 3.0: Review. Time: 10 Minutes. Tutor notes: What’s it all about? This exercise allows group members to recap on their learning from the previous session. What you need: List of learning points from previous session. Running the exercise: 49

3. Recap on the learning points from the previous session by asking the group to recall what they learned, in particular the purpose of the exercises should be revisited. 4. Allow group members to describe briefly any time over that last week that they have used the skills and how they dealt with them. Learning points: Greater understanding and control of behaviour can be gained recapping on learning. Exercise 3.1: Offending aims and long term goals. Time: 25 minutes Tutor notes: What’s it all about? The long term goals of a young person who offends are often long term goals shared with people who do not offend. For example, a young person selling drugs may have a goal of having enough money to buy the latest trainers. Their long term goal is to achieve status within their peer group. This goal can be shared by a young person who works part time whilst at college who will earn the money to buy the trainers. The point here is that most people will find a way of achieving their goal without breaking the law. In this exercise the young people will begin to determine their personal long term goals which have led to their offending behaviour. (It is important to focus on this and not generate alternative goals or pathways to goals as this will be explored in later exercises). 50

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
