Synopsis: It is clear that patterns of criminal thinking and behavior begin early in life. Accordingly, Tampa Crossroads implemented Creating Responsible Thinkers as a crime prevention program for at-risk youth and their families. This six-week holistic program was offered to 92 teens and parents who completed measures to assess their satisfaction with the program. Items were completed at baseline, posttest, and three-month follow-up. Results suggest that both teens and parents were overwhelmingly satisfied and believed the program contents to be relevant and useful to their family situation. These results underscore the appropriateness of a family-based holistic approach to treatment.
