Posted on October 21, 2021 at 12:51 PM by Kansas Department of Administration

Thinking for a Change (T4C) is a cognitive behavior change program that is evidence-based and proven effective in reducing recidivism when implemented correctly. The youth referred demonstrate a pattern of cognitive distortions, thinking errors, and anti-social beliefs that are supportive of criminal behavior. Participation in T4C provides the opportunity for youth to improve in the areas of social skills, problem solving, critical reasoning, self-control and impulse management. The group meets twice a week over the course of 24 lessons.  The goal is to identify and serve all youth who demonstrate this need.

Graphs show the Number of Juvenile Offenders Who Completed Thinking for Change (T4C) for FY14 through FY17 and FY18 by Quarter

In some cases, quarterly data has been annualized to provide a better comparison to prior fiscal years.  Generally, measures that use percentages have been annualized.  This prevents distortions in the quarterly data that may occur because of smaller populations sizes.  Measures that show the numbers of incidents, activities or individuals reflect actual numbers for the quarter.  This allows users to see progress from one quarter to the next towards identified goals.
