In this twenty-fourth episode of the Detention to Redemption podcast, I interview Rahje Spon, from Roscoe, Illinois. Rahje is the founder of Truthought.com a Pro-Social Influence Company dedicated to encouraging development and improvement in all aspects of society. They offer an evidence-based process designed to identify both positive and negative patterns in people’s thoughts and behaviors and guide them in developing personalized plans to improve their life. Truthought has developed the curriculum “Charting A New Course” that I currently use inside of prison and have found extremely effective!
Rahje shares with us how that this curriculum was informed by the clinical research/treatment study conducted by psychologist Stanton Samenow, who has written several books on the subject of criminal thinking, most notably, “The Criminal Personality (3 vol.),” and “Inside the Criminal Mind.” After decades of research, Samenow has identified in excess of 50 thinking patterns that are prevalent among criminals, which Truthought has incorporated into nine specific categories designated as “thinking barriers.”
You the listener will be encouraged by Rahje’s passion for this curriculum and how it has impacted many that are incarcerated! I most definitely would recommend this curriculum and I encourage you to check it out at the link below. Thank you for listening to this podcast and make sure you share it this with those whom may be encouraged and challenged by it.
If you have been touched by the music that is shared during this podcast you can buy an album that was written and recorded inside of prison at “Another Captive Free.”
