|Program Description is taken from The First Step Act Approved Program Guide||Transition Acceptance is a gender-responsive and trauma-informed care curriculum for incarcerated women and men, grounded in the evidence-based practices of cognitive behavioral therapy; the
transtheoretical model of behavior change; motivational interviewing, mindfulness, and interactive journaling. The program is designed to provide a supportive place for participants to explore the journey they’re on with their gender transition. The program consists of a Women’s Program Series and a Men’s Program Series, each designed to address the unique challenges faced by offenders during
incarceration. Components include setting out on my path, emotional transition, social transition, medical transition, and looking forward. The program also includes interactive videos that can be utilized during program delivery.
