Tampa Federal Offender Rehabilitation. Final Report.
Tallant, Kyle M.; And Others
Vocational rehabilitation counselors were assigned on a full-time basis to the Federal Probation Office in Tampa, Florida, to work with probationers and releasees as soon as the case files were received in the probation office. This 3-year project was part of a cooperative research program conducted in seven states. A total of 247 offenders ranging in age from 17 to 53 were selected for the Tampa program and randomly placed in one of three groups. Experience with the project showed that as work continued with the client, he lost his antagonistic and mythical hardness and emerged as an individual in need of help. It was found that the counselor had to have considerable time flexibility and be able to intervene with the offender during crisis periods. Recommendations for application of the findings and for further research are listed. Various tables and guidelines for a final report are appended. (BC)
