The Experimental Manpower Laboratory for Corrections.
Rehabilitation Research Foundation, Elmore, AL.
The Rehabilitation Research Foundation (RRF) proposes to conduct, under supervision of the State Department of Vocational Education, a Manpower Training Program for Prisoners (MTPP) at Draper Correctional Center, Elmore, Alabama. The project is proposed for 13 months. The proposal contains several innovative and experimental features, the most significant of which are the project's relationships with the Experimental Manpower Laboratory for Corrections (EMLC) and a newly created Center for Studies in Community Corrections (CSCC) which is also operated by the RRF. Derived from these linkages will be two mutually beneficial outcomes: (1) The EMLC will have manpower trainees to use as subjects in its experimental studies and CSCC will have manpower graduates referred to it for its treatment, training, and coordinated services programs in the community; and (2) The MTPP will have the Lab's input for improving upon its training and rehabilitative effort and an outreach community center(CSCC) where postrelease graduates can receive follow-up services, such as continuing basic education, "crisis" intervention, behavior modification, and job development and placement. Other experimental features of the proposal include: (1) Selection, training, and provision of related services for approximately 175 male inmates of the Alabama prison system; (2) Application of "contingency management" procedures to shape optimum training performance and behavior change; and (3) To use incentive payments in simulating real life experience.
