This workbook is for all people who may be experiencing problems associated with self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. It is a self-development workbook designed to teach cognitive skills that will empower participants to live happier, more productive lives. This course was designed for non-criminals, although it can be used for offenders (Offender Responsibility is the equivalent for offenders). It was intended to be used by therapists and others who need a strong cognitive component to their counseling. Often, the answers to the future can be found in the past. The subconscious mind remembers things in three basic ways: repetition, trauma, and emotion. Cognitive Awareness Level 1 is 28 pages long and takes, on average, 8 hours to complete.
