This program has been enormously helpful because it organizes not only information but defines the emotional/behavioral/psychological factors that can affect behavior. Increased understanding leads to hope for change: and yields determination. I wish that more people had access to the information, and it saddens me to think that this program is not available to people with fewer resources than my own. I looked for groups and centers that would address this problem for a very long time, to no avail (A.A., NA, GA, and DA) and received no useful references. For this reason, I would hope that the information might effectively apply to all the levels of retailers, law enforcement agencies, the judicial system, schools, churches, and self-help groups. Many of us have a propensity for compulsive behaviors. We may benefit as soon as possible from a heightened understanding of the source and more importantly, the tools that encourage and support the permanent modification of such behaviors. I also think that once exposed to the information and resources; the offender should pursue avenues that included ongoing treatment and support. The long-term programs imposed by Court or retailer in exchange, or as a condition of probation/sentence.
I always felt angry, even at myself. I took it out on myself and anyone who came into my path at home, the street, in my car or work. I realize that with a few changes and time to work things out, I began to feel better, less stressed, most of all, I stopped the rage. The day I enrolled, I was enraged because of the money and time. I was not too fond of the system. I now know the system cared enough to help me. I thank B.M.G. for my life back. I have a good job, and things at home are much better. My smile is back.
Felt this Home Evaluation Learning Program was beneficial. It helps one understanding their self and understanding their mistakes in first time shoplifting. I still ask myself how this did happen; I always thought I was the right person. All I can say, it will never happen again. Reading the educational program while attending counseling has helped me learn and understand myself.
This is an excellent program; it is both helpful and educational. I enjoyed this program. It was able to put information into ways that are not boring. Also, the information was valuable, and I learned a lot about myself and the crime of shoplifting.
I was referred to B.M.G. for road rage. When the judge recommended B.M.G., I thought it would be easy and have little to do. Wrong, the manual took a while to do and then came counseling. The manual was easy and explained a lot about behavior and how I can make better choices. I learned a lot; counseling was the best. I thought it was going to be like my last therapy. My counselor at B.M.G. never said I was wrong, but helped me understand why I did not want to be like that anymore. She helped me, my marriage, and how to be happy without anger
