Intervention: Manuales del Programa de Intervención a las Pandillas

The following workbooks are critical elements in a Spanish-language gang intervention program. The program is part of our comprehensive curriculum.

Catalog Code Title Description Hours
GG1 What Was On Your Mind?
Spanish: ¿Qué tenías en mente? (Estado de mente pandillero)
This is an important workbook, a cognitive restructuring approach to gang activity. It identifies selected negative mind-sets common to people involved in gang activity. Then, it addresses each of these in a systematic fashion, identifying weaknesses in that form of thinking, and offering guidance in the development of a more positive outlook. 8
GG2 Who Wants to be at Risk?
Spanish: ¿Quién quiere estar a riesgo?
This workbook addresses the "risk factors" approach to gang involvement and activity. The objective is for participants to identify their own highest risk factors and acknowledge that these risks and temptations will be out there, waiting, upon release. 14
GG3 What do You Need? (needs and gangs)
Spanish: ¿Qué necesitas? (Las necesidades y las pandillas)
This workbook — based on Maslow's needs hierarchy theory — addresses gang activity from the point of view of underlying needs. These needs won't go away; they will be present when the participants return to the community. Thus this workbook guides the participants in finding alternative — and better — ways to meet those needs than gangs or crime. 6
GG4 Living a Nonviolent Life #1
Spanish: Viviendo una vida sin violencia #1
This workbook provides the opportunity for clients to identify their triggers and highest personal risk factors for violence and to develop strategies to avoid these issues or to cope more effectively in the future. 10
GG5 Living a Nonviolent Life #2
Spanish: Viviendo una vida sin violencia # 2
This workbook provides a more focused opportunity for clients to identify their highest risk factors for violence (the people, places, things, times, and situations where they are at highest risk). It guides the development of "environmental control" strategies to avoid these issues and situations — and helps clients explore their options. 8
GG7 Understanding Yourself #1
Spanish: Comprendiendote a ti mismo #1
This is the "risk factors" approach to aggression and violence. It provides an alternative approach to violence issues and behavior, addressing community and family risk factors for violence. For clients, the objective is to begin by increasing awareness. Then, clients can admit that they have these risk factors and acknowledge that these risks and temptations will be out there, waiting, upon release. 9
GG8 Understanding Yourself #2
Spanish: Comprendiendote a ti mismo #2
This is the "risk factors" approach to passive-aggressive behavior, which can often lead to violence and other problems. It provides an alternative approach to violence, addressing community and family risk factors for this passive-aggressive behavior. (Approach is similar to GG7, above) 5
