Who Uses C2?

         Due to the content and flexibility of C2, the program is effective in a wide range of settings.

 
Schools  

     For an educator, many character training options exist for you that may be integrated into the classroom.  Many superintendents, assistants, principals, school counselors, BD teachers, and those dealing with discipline issues and working with alternative schools have found that, for their students who need character training the most, these options have not met the need.  They express a need for something that the kids see as “cool” and that grabs the kids’ hearts as well as their minds.   read more

  

Juvenile Justice Facilities

     C2 may be used in most clinical and non-clinical juvenile justice settings, enhancing and complimenting step-down programs, Life Skills, Values Clarification, etc. In C2 groups, youth respond well to the material and connect positively with one another. Their attitudes change as they realize they can gain a foundation for a healthy, happy life. read more

  

      

Recovery Programs and Substance Abuse Facilities

     Most teens who abuse don’t respond well to character training.  It seems to remind them of their failure.  We targeted them in designing the material, looking for ways to motivate them using:

Movie clips that capture teen hearts and attention

Interactive, strengths-based presentations

Provocative and engaging journal questions

Peer challenge and reinforcement through discussion

Easy instructions that allow minimal instructor training or student supervision

Three formats for exceptional flexibility    read more

  

Residential Care and Foster Homes

     From day one, kids in “the system” are whom Mark Liston Ed.S, author of C2, had in mind as he wrote the material and chose the movies.  Many of the movies tell the stories of kids who are abused, from single families, or are in residential care.  Think of “Step Up,” “Finding Forrester,” “Gridiron Gang,” and “August Rush.”  In fact, only three of the 24 do not specifically deal with these themes.  read more

  

Therapist using C2 for Private Practice

     C2 and the Pursuing Happiness approach may be used to create or strengthen one’s private practice.  It will require a paradigm shift for most of us to a focus on client strengths rather than their problems.  It attempts to encourage their abilities more than treat their liabilities.  read more
