Something for Nothing

A cognitive behavioral, 4 hour intervention between a trained facilitator and an offender who has been charged with the offense of retail theft.  The curriculum covers making choices and accepting rules but most importantly examines in detail “Who Gets Hurt by Shoplifting”.  This program incorporates Victim Offender Mediation which is a face-to-face meeting, between the victim of a crime and the person who committed that crime.  In the meeting the offender and the victim talk to each other about what happened, the effects of the crime on their lives, and their feelings about it.
