REWIRE by Roca

Roca, in partnership with Massachusetts General Hospital, developed a cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT) approach that can be taught, practiced, and mastered in the streets and community settings. ReWire by Roca – CBT Skills for Living, was designed to overcome traditional barriers to access, allowing for front line staff to deliver instruction both in the community and in institutional settings, with a focus on teaching basic concepts via a flexible, trauma-informed, low-threshold approach to cognitive-behavioral skill building.

Offered through the Roca Impact Institute, the Roca’s ReWire Institute is a 3-month (12 week) Train the Trainer series designed to prepare a team of professionals to train and support staff in your organization to implement the ReWire approach to delivering CBT.
