The Offender: An Answer to the Correctional Manpower Crisis. Implementation Issues.
DeVry, Guy, Ed.
On September 8-10, 1966, some 50 correctional administrators, ex-offenders, and behavioral scientists met at Asilomar, California, to explore the problems and issues in using offenders and ex-offenders as staff in correctional agencies. Prepared and distributed to all participants prior to the workshop were six position papers. The papers covered six issues involved in building offenders into staff positions: (1) selection, (2) training, (3) personal adjustment, (4) community relationships, (5) agency staff relationships, and (6) administration. Each issue was presented by a panel, then discussed in both small groups and in the large group. These proceedings include both the position papers and summaries of the study group and total group discussions. An appendix contains papers by two participants who discuss an innovative use of the offender in correctional development. (BP)
