Shoplifting Prevention Education Class

“Something for Nothing”

Something for Nothing is a shoplifting prevention class that takes a cognitive behavior approach. The workbook involved is intended for use in a brief intervention conducted primarily in probation setting. Appropriate clients are those who have charges against them for shoplifting. This program is designed for 10 sessions with the completion of 6 exercises and 10 hours of community service. Some of the major topics that are addressed in this prevention class are; 

Who gets hurt by shoplifting? Everyone gets hurt by shoplifting. This section sheds light on how the community as a whole is affected as well as how businesses, manufacturers and families while tackling the severity and danger of it.

Types of shoplifters. There are two basic types of shoplifters. This section elaborates on what these types are and how to decipher which one is at hand while effectively confronting the shoplifting behavior.

Criminal Thinking. We tackle the criminal thinking process that says that it’s alright to violate others or the property of others. We address why individuals think the way they do, to aid the criminal thinker in developing, expanding and sustaining a moral conscious as well as informing them on errors in thinking.

Prevention. Crime prevention is the attempt to reduce and deter crime. It is applied specifically to efforts made by governments to reduce crime, enforce the law, and maintain criminal justice. We want to diminish the unwanted behavior and help the individual take full responsibility of the situation that landed them there.

Something For Nothing is designed to assist individuals with recognizing triggers and how to affectively overcome the urge to shoplift. With this 10 session cognitive approach, one will eliminate this undesired behavior, become a positive and active members of the community.
