Offenders as a Correctional Manpower Resource. Report of a Seminar (Washington, D.C., March 7-8, 1968).
Joint Commission on Correctional Manpower and Training, Washington, DC.
The use of the offender and ex-offender as manpower resources in corrections is a practice about which there is little agreement but an enormous amount of concern. Self-help programs such as Alcoholic s Anonymous and Synanon have attracted wide attraction. The concept of using a product of the problem to help others with the same problem is not new, but it has been applied only to a limited degree in the rehabilitation of the public offender. To allow a full expression of views on this topic, the papers given at this meeting examine the promise and problems of such a program for the offender himself, for the correctional system and for society. Presentations include: "Offender Participation in the Correctional Process: General Theoretical Issues" by LaMar T. Empey; "Sources of Resistance to the Use of Offenders and Ex-Offenders in the Correctional Process" by Donald R. Cressey; and "Vital Components of a Model Program Using the Offender in the Administration of Justice" by J. Douglas Grant. (CH)
