Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT)
What is Moral Reconation Therapy?
MRT is a systematic treatment strategy that seeks to decrease recidivism among juvenile and adult criminal offenders by increasing moral reasoning. A cognitive-behavioral type of treatment approach, MRT combines elements from a variety of psychological models to address the clients ego, moral, social, and positive behavioral growth, and research has shown that this type of therapy can increase moral reasoning in adult drug and alcohol as well as juvenile offenders.

- Confrontation of beliefs, behaviors, and attitudes
- Reinforcement of positive behavior and habits
- Development of higher stages of moral reasoning
- Assessment of current relationships
- Positive identity formation
- Enhancement of self-concept
- Decrease in hedonism and development of frustration tolerance
