CARE is an accredited offending behaviour intervention developed by NOMS for adult women in custody who have a history of violence and evidence of complex need. CARE aims to enable women to better understand their risk and needs and to support them in living a satisfying and pro‐social life. CARE does this by targeting the following areas:

  • Motivation and Engagement – to provide hope that change is possible and the support to make change
  • Insight & Awareness – to increase understanding of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that influence risk
  • Attitudes & Beliefs – to develop pro‐social ways of seeing the world that are consistent with how the woman would like to live their life
  • Emotion Management – to increase awareness into emotional states and to develop skills to better regulate emotional experiences.
  • Interpersonal Skills – to develop pro‐social skills for dealing with conflict
  • Social Inclusion and Resettlement – to develop realistic and achievable plans for the future, including the development of support networks.
