RESOURCE TOOLS FOR REENTRY FOR TRANSGENDER INDIVIDUALS
|Program Description is taken from The First Step Act Approved Program Guide||The Resource Tools for Reentry for Transgender Individuals is a gender-responsive curriculum for incarcerated women and men, grounded in the evidenced-based practices of cognitive behavioral
therapy; the transtheoretical model of behavior change; motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and interactive journaling. The program is designed to help prepare transgender participants for the challenges of reintegrating into society in the topics of ID documentation, housing, employment, healthcare, and mental health. These hurdles may be related to their gender identity as well as their criminal history. Participants will learn how to advocate for themselves and are given tools to face these challenges. Components include getting legal identification, finding safe housing, finding reliable employment, finding proper healthcare, and caring for your mental health.
