Theft Class Online™ Course Outline

The class was designed for individuals who need to take an theft, shoplifting, larceny, petty theft or stealing education class. These classes are typically required by either the court, probation, school, employer or simply for self-improvement. Our program was designed by theft education and impulse control experts with the guidance of Dr. Ari Novick, a licensed psychotherapist. These are educational classes only and should not be taken as a substitute for medical or psychological counseling or advice or as a replacement for in/out patient treatment.
