Testimonials

I am writing in regards to my friend. I've know her for about 15 years, and have seen her spiral into sadness, anger and depression over the past few years. I can't believe the changes she has made over the past month since doing the Anger Management course. She is happier, deals with frustrations much more effectively, and has removed herself from the elements in her life that had taken her into the dark place she was in. I wanted to take the time to say thank you for helping my friend come back to the person she was, so she can be a better friend, daughter and most importantly, MOTHER. Your course has made such a positive impact on her life, she is so much happier. Thank you!

ACCI Model

The philosophical model that drives American Community Corrections Institute is represented by the diagram below. It is that our thoughts drive our feelings and emotions, which produce our attitudes and behaviors, that result in the consequences of our lives. If we never change our faulty thinking, we will never change our self-defeating behaviors.




If we keep on thinking
what we have been
thinking, we will keep on
doing what we have been
doing, and we will keep
getting what we have been
getting.
Self-Defeating Behaviors




If we want to change what
we have been getting, then
we will have to change
what we have been
thinking. Otherwise,
nothing will change.
