Counselor Resources

The Diversion Center offers training programs, curricula for facilitating court-mandated classes, consulting services to help you start your own court-mandated treatment facility, and workbooks that help to keep clients engaged and interested in their classes. Each workbook encourages self-reflection and teaches that self-awareness is the key to mastering their addiction, criminal thoughts and actions, and improving their lives long-term. The books have between 100 and 150 pages of content, and are designed for group programs, although they can be used in individual sessions as well. Our books are self-published, and not labeled for resale. The workbooks do not have instructor manuals, as they are designed to be used by counselors at any stage in their careers. They largely require subjective responses intended to make the clients think about different situations and their experiences, rather than giving a right or wrong answer.

All workbooks are $30, but price breaks are given for orders at 10, 25, 50, and 100. To order books, call us directly at (770)690-9622, email us at info@thediversioncenter.com.
