||1. Recommendation - Generally, the curriculum seems to be too heavily focused on knowledge, at the expense of skills. A balance should be sought. Review and revise the curriculum based on the session reviews provided in the report. Most importantly,
a. Modify the process for facilitating the Personal Development Plan to make it more central and systematic. As it is, it appears to be an unrelated add-on to the end of each session. It could also become a routine discussion point in the weekly Recap. Consideration should also be given to sharing the Personal Development Plan with the Court upon programme completion, as an indicator of progress as well as future intention.
b. Strengthen the skills development aspects of the Anger Management and Conflict Resolution sessions, as well as the Relapse Prevention session, offering and practicing multiple strategies and techniques. Skill development should be revisited throughout the Programme.
c. Pay special attention to the sessions for which the expected outcomes were not fully achieved, and make curricular improvements in the sessions that addressed these areas.
d. Consider streamlining some of the knowledge-based sessions to make time for the additional skills development activities.
