Acquiring Essential Life Skills 

The Social Responsibility Training (SRT®)
life skills training curricula keep at-risk students in school and prepare them to be responsible, employable members of society.

Since 2001, SRT’s standardized, cognitive behavioral social and life skills curricula have been used successfully in more than 100 school districts and communities in 17 states.

SRT life skills training is also being used in collaborative partnerships uniting schools, parents, community agencies and justice

A School Discipline Solution

Social Responsibility Training (SRT®) curricula are evidence-based prevention and community intervention tools for at risk youth, adults, parents and families. SRT curricula are designed to support community implementation strategies and scalability. SRT curricula address multiple learning styles and use writing, drawing, building communication skills, discussion, role play, homework, weekly goal setting, brief lectures, and peer feedback.


“SRT curricula are designed for open entry/open exit class delivery. Each participant works at his/her own pace, and class members who are farther along in the process support and assist those who entered the class later. Participants prepare exercises prior to class and present them to the entire class and receive constructive feedback, support, and accountability. 

Powerful Cognitive Restructuring

SRT supports pro-social attitudes through a series of gradually more demanding exercises. Participants are engaged to act in their best self-interest and to help others. SRT facilitates constructive self-examination, and questioning of behavior and attitudes connected to self-defeating behavior and faulty school, family, parenting and community strategies. Research findings on SRT are presented here: 

Through awareness, discussion, non-threatening accountability from the leader and peers, participants experience constructive dissonance between former actions and choices and new knowledge about behavior, relationships and addictions. SRT enhances participant motivation to change.

Participants take responsibility for their choices, move out of a victim position, and recognize that they unwittingly create many of their own challenges. Participants start positive daily choices and set goals to avoid problem behavior and situations and learn practical problem solving and coping skills.”
