The CPL cadre of trainers are experienced,

former law encforcement personnel and former executives.
We are committed and dedicated to assisting
offenders and law-abiding individuals in acquiring skills to change their thinking, make better decisions and
choices, and thereby, turn their lives around. Empowering People to Succeed is the motivation behind every
service we provide.
Our training modules are designed to include
people of all populations (law abiding and criminal) with special emphasis on the troubled individual. To that
end, we endeavor to provide the community with the best and most rewarding services available.

*****Why We Do What We Do*****
The criminal justice system currently administers
several different types of punitive sanctions such as community service, a fine, probation, incarceration,
We believe, while these sanctions help offenders
to pay back their debt to society, these sanctions don't provide the kind of support that many offenders need to
help them get to the "root cause" of their offender behavior.
We believe, as the criminal justice system
strives to increase its effectiveness in reducing recidivism, the educational
component must be incorporated as additional sanction for offenders. Our materials and

Group One consisted of an average of 70% who had a strong cognitive
Group Two consisted of an average of 20% who had a good cognitive experience.
Group Three consisted of an average of 10% who indicated little or no change in their cognition or willingness to
Clearly the results of these studies show that we can project a positive success rate.
Of those who participated in the Cognitive Awareness Life Skills Workshops, upward to 90% could avoid repeating
their previous behavior.
