Description

This solicitation will support the development, implementation, and evaluation of mentoring approaches that integrate principles or practices informed by the research on cognitive behavioral interventions and techniques. For purposes of this solicitation, these types of approaches are based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is a psychotherapeutic approach that focuses on both a person's thinking, moods, and feelings to be more adaptive and healthy and a person's actions to change unhealthy behavior patterns. It is not expected that applicants under this solicitation will integrate formal therapy within mentoring, but instead integrate practices that are informed by the theoretical underpinnings of CBT and the empirical research about the application of these types of approaches with high risk youth
