Moving Forward is an assigned status for
those needing ongoing structure, long term management or gradual
movement to a less structured environment.
Inmates participating in the DI program will develop and maintain an
increased sense of self-regulation and adaptive behaviors so that they
are able to transition to a less restrictive environment.
Unit Program Summary
The DI program is designed or suited primarily for inmates who present
problematic behaviors and have difficulty maintaining pro-social
behaviors in a less structured environment. The DI program integrates
the "recovery" and "decompression" models of
treatment in providing behavioral feedback. The unit program is designed
to foster awareness and adaptation of self-control as well as enhancing
appropriate social interactions with peers and institution staff. The
unit operates as an inter-disciplinary management program, structured to
provide rapid feedback about their behaviors. The inter-disciplinary
treatment team reviews inmate progress daily and identifies individual
treatment needs. Along with the Wisconsin Resource Center's objective
and goals, the F12 team focuses on empowering inmates to learn the
necessary skills for improving the quality of institutional life and to
enhance self-reliance and confidence.
In addition to the Daily Incentive Program,
F12 provides services for chronically ill and/or poorly adjusted
inmates, who do not need an incentive program. F 12 houses some long
term men who will remain at WRC for the time they are incarcerated. We
work closely with the Psychiatric Service Teams on A 2 and H 15 to
provide treatment and security to those in our care.
