Why TruThought?

TruThought addresses numerous thinking barriers and tactics which interfere with the decision-making process. Allowing youth to practice identifying these barriers and identify ways to intervene prior to trouble will contribute to more successful outcomes.

What to Expect

Youth will meet once a week for eight to ten consecutive weeks. Each session will run for one and a half hours and include 6 to 10 youth (both male and female) of similar age and developmental level. Groups will be held on Thursday evenings from 4:30 to 6:00PM at Clackamas County Juvenile Department.
