Programmes for Offenders at DLNR

As part of your community order you may have been ordered to attend a programme that has been designed to target behaviour or attitudes that have led to your offending. You will attend a group and the tutors will deliver each session that will gradually help you to learn new skills and a new approach to future problems or certain situations that have landed you in trouble. DLNR have the following standard programs.
Thinking Skills Programme (TSP),
It is designed for those offenders who display poor problem solving skills, or impulsive behaviour and a lack of thinking concerning the consequences of their actions.

Control of Violence for Angry Impulsive Drinkers (COVAID), 
It is aimed at those offenders who are violent when intoxicated. It is designed to help control the amount drunk and to identify and decrease those risk factors associated with drinking. COVAID can also be used for offenders who commit acts of domestic violent when intoxicated.
