Season 5, Episode 22
As we learned in last week’s episode, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been effective in reducing criminal behavior among teenagers in Chicago and former child soldiers in Liberia. This week we go to England, where behavioral-therapy workshops for low-level domestic violence offenders have achieved a 40 percent reduction in repeat incidents of abuse.
We also talk with an environmental economist who analyzed the impact of energy-efficient building regulations in California and discovered the benefits to the environment were not all they were cracked up to be.
