Fink, Ludwig; And Others
"Modern Methods of Criminal Rehabilitation" was the subject of a conference held in Chazy, New York. The institution dealt with was the Diagnostic and Treatment Center at Clinton Prison in New York. A movie "A New Way to Prepare for a New Life" presented an overview of the rehabilitation program for multiple offenders. A transcript of the film is included. A panel discussion on "Who is the Chronic Offender" was presented by a group of students who interviewed inmates at the prison. The discussion following this panel was led by inmates who had come for this purpose. Dr. Steurup presented a lecture on psychotherapy, diagnosis and treatment. Next, a panel summarized the conference, pointing out the need to use existing knowledge and to indicate priorities for the future. An interview with Jacques Bernheim provided an additional international perspective. (KJ)
