COMMUNITY MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
COMMUNITY MAINTENANCE PROGRAM (CMP)
- This program is a generic aftercare program for male federal parolees designed as a follow up for all national Correctional Services of Canada programs with a self management component, excluding those from Sex Offenders Programs.
- The purpose of the program is to review skills that are taught in feeder programs and to learn to apply the skills to problems, high risk situations and obstacles in the community that can lead to reoffending.
- Program treatment targets pertain to the areas of problem solving, high risk thinking, self management skills, goal setting, healthy relationships and emotions management.
- The program consists of a cycle of 12 sessions that are delivered at a rate of 1 session per week. The number of sessions a participant is required to attend is individually determined by the level of risk and success, measured by treatment gains.
