Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT) is a systematic step-by-step treatment strategy designed to enhance self-image; promote growth of a positive, productive identity; and facilitate the development of higher stages of moral reasoning. MRT seeks to re-educate clients socially, morally, and behaviorally to instill appropriate goals, motivation, and values. Studies have shown that this program significantly increases the participant's odds of success. MRT is an open-ended program allowing clients to enter the program at any point in their supervision.
