Manual for Volunteers in Adult Corrections.
Washington State Dept. of Social and Health Services, Olympia.
Washington is one of the pioneer states in the use of volunteers in the rehabilitation of persons convicted of crimes; at present over 500 private citizens are working with adult offenders and the division's correctional staff, inside and outside of the institutions. This manual was prepared to be of use to them, and to professional workers in the field. It provides information on the criminal justice system in Washington state, qualifications for volunteers, their roles, and working with the offender within the institutions or when he is one parole. The State Offices of Probation and Parole are listed and there is a glossary of terms. (EB)
