This workbook made me realize that I can deal with things in a different way and I am starting a new beginning. I am in control and don't think about the past because every day is a new day and its up to me to make it good.

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.
