Driving With Care® programs are nationally recognized education programs for DWI/DUI and underage offenders convicted of drinking and driving. Driving With Care was developed by Harvey Milkman, Ph.D., David Timkim, Ph.D. and Kenneth Wanberg, Ph.D. (All rights reserved, permission for use required from authors.)
DWC means caring about yourself and caring about others. The program is built on the approach that individuals make changes in their actions by changing the way they think. Through intensive program sessions, participants gain the knowledge and skills to change their thinking so they may change their actions. This is accomplished through participation in class sessions, discussions and assignments. The program assignments include exercises and worksheets to help participants apply the topics and material to their own situations.
DWC participants are required to take an active part in each session. Each session has exercises and work sheets to help participants apply the topics and material to their own situations. Attendance at each session is mandatory with the facilitator providing attendance feedback to the probation officer when necessary.
This 6-session, 12-hour DWI education program is for first time offenders who indicate minimal, if any problems other than impaired driving, associated with alcohol or drug use, who have no prior offenses, no prior diagnosis of Substance Abuse or Substance Dependence, and no other problems related to AOD use or misuse. The focus of this protocol is to prevent DWI recidivism and future AOD related problems.
This is a 12-session, 24-hour education program for offenders convicted of driving with a blood alcohol level beyond twice the legal limit and/or while under the influence of another drug. The program is built on the philosophy that offenders make changes in their actions by changing how they think. This program will give DWI offenders the knowledge and skills needed to change their thinking so they may change their actions and prevent future DWI's/DUI's.
