Correctional Staff Training Institutes. Final Report.
Southern Illinois Univ., East St. Louis, Center for the Study of Crime, Delinquency and Corrections.; Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (Dept. of Justice), Washington, DC.
Three national institutes for correctional staff trainers incorporated new techniques in an attempt to upgrade corrections programs through improved staff development. There were 78 trainer and 200 middle management staff and correctional officers involved in the program, representing more than 100 correctional institutions in the United States. The institutes lasted for 8 weeks and were divided into three phases. During the first 5 weeks the participants attended laboratory sessions, lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and audio-visual programs. The next 2 weeks were used for a practice teaching period. Each individual was responsible for his own lessons and each selected appropriate teaching methods and evaluation programs for teaching sessions. The last week consisted of an intensive review of all the training material. A list of the training officers and a curriculum guide is appended. (BC)
