Bracket's Offender Education Courses
One of the most frustrating parts of misdemeanor and low-end felonies is how many offenders repeat. And for everyone who you see in your office or court, you know several more have fallen back into the same or similar bad habits. An effective educational course can help correct the “games” people play, to their own detriment.
Game Changing - Break the cycle of repeat offenders.
Expect more from your educational course.
There are other offender education courses available but virtually none have the credentials to support their content. Bracket education is the genuine article, based on the latest research and developments in social science, behavioral psychology and cognitive learning. The courses are developed in conjunction with learning and psychology professionals and draw on internationally recognized sources. It is all about change and Bracket does more to break the cycles of behavior and move people toward making better life decisions.
Bracket Better Choices Student - Do you check references?
There are several offender education courses available and some have been around for a long time. But you might want to check the pedigree and the age.
It is often difficult to find the source for most of those courses. Take a look. Is there any reference to the author or the source material? When was it written? Does the course use current research or, for that matter, any research? Can you maybe find passages that come from other – not cited – sources? Check Bracket.
We use the latest research and established practices. Our sources are some of the country’s leading authorities. And the course work is ours (not something copied from a dubious source on the internet).
Make first-time offenders, one-time-only offenders. Developed by mental health and social science professionals.
Offender Education is a critical component for diversion and probation programs. Repeat offenders are a frustrating, continuing burden to the criminal justice system as well as your community at large. Educating offenders makes a positive difference.
But not all educational courses measure up. Take a look for yourself. If your program utilizes an educational component, check the credentials of the mental health or social science professional who created it. Sadly, in most instances you will find no reference to the authors, much less to their qualifications.
Bracket schools are grounded in proven cognitive and behavioral concepts and draw on the latest research across a range of psychological disciplines. Compare for yourself. Demand better.
Applicable for most low-end offenders, this curriculum makes up the core for other educational classes. This comprehensive course provides understanding of how people make choices, how they avoid bad choices and ways to build willpower and good decision making habits. Based on the latest research into cognitive and behavioral science, the course presents serious information in an easy-to-understand format that leads the student through the course.
Driving offenses probably create the largest number of cases and the most disproportionate demand of resources for both prosecutors and courts. That’s where Bracket can help the most. These misdemeanor cases have clear-cut procedures that should be handled with Bracket’s computer-like efficiency. But efficiency is not the same as effectiveness.
Offender education is as important for driving offenses as it is for any other. Drivers make conscious decisions every minute they are behind the wheel and good decision making is extremely important when a person is in control of a two-ton object moving at a high (or low) speed.

MIP - Drug and Alcohol Offenses
Minors are a “high-success” segment of the population when it comes to offender education. It is the time in their lives when a clear, straight-forward message can make a difference. Teens and young adults today are far past accepting platitudes or psycho-babble. But they will respond to a genuine message that has meaning for them. Bracket’s MIP/Drug and Alcohol educational courses can help turn these offenders around so they don’t continue to compound the problems that landed them in a diversion program in the first place.
It’s not likely that you will ever offer diversion to offenders who are professional or high-level thieves. Diversion or probation programs focus on the people who wouldn’t normally be considered professional criminals. Clearly, they are people who have crossed the line but there is a reasonable expectation that an effective educational component can significantly reduce the chances of the offender repeating his/her crime. BounceBack Bracket’s offender educational courses have that one goal in mind – helping lower-end offenders change their behavior and decision-making processes so they don’t reoffend.
