DUI Therapy Worksheet

What is the theory behind this DUI Therapy Worksheet?

Driving under the Influence of Alcohol or drugs is a punishable offense that can lead to lasting negative consequences for the self and others. People who face this charge are mandated by the court to attend therapy or counselling sessions to ensure they understand the gravity of their situation and learn to take responsibility for their actions. Group counselling sessions that incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy techniques have been shown to be effective in DUI recidivism.

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet can be a part of extensive CBT group sessions for people charged with a DUI offense. It will help participants brainstorm ideas on what they can do to prevent themselves from drinking more than they should or what precautionary measures can ensure they do not end up driving and drinking again. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet can be used as part of an extensive CBT group counselling session. Instruct the group participants to pair up and discuss which strategies can help them reduce their risky drinking behaviour. Pairing up with one another will ensure individuals are able to learn from each other’s experiences as they work through the exercise.
