Development Laboratory for Correctional Training. Final Report.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale. Center for the Study of Crime, Delinquency and Corrections.
This laboratory and research center for the training of correctional officers and personnel developed a program to provide: (1) a substantive framework of knowledge, (2) intensive training in learning principles, human behavior, communication procedures, and teaching techniques, and (3) practice in teaching under supervision for the in-service training of prison personnel. Curriculum was developed for a 9-week institute which included training curriculum, student teaching, and administrative support. A thorough examination of the institute was one of the main features of the program, which was attended by representatives of 14 states. A written evaluation was made by trainers, correctional officers, and management, and a followup study in the field evaluated the impact of the program on the various correctional institutions. Both evaluations showed that the program was beneficial, and the followup study illustrated that the institute did have an impact on prison training programs. (BC)
