Rehabilitation Research Foundation, Elmore, AL.
This report covers these five major projects of the Experimental Manpower Laboratory for Corrections: (1) a manpower training program for Alabama prisoners, (2) an experiment in contingency management, (3) implementation of token economy in Draper Correctional Center, (4) a manpower training project for correctional officers, and (5) a followup effort focusing on released offenders. Project objectives, methods, procedures, problems, and results (as complete as possible at the time of the project's termination) are given. Some highlights of the overall program are: (1) open entry/exit feature of vocational training with an emphasis on individualization, (2) the basic education delivery system (Individually Prescribed Instruction System), (3) techniques of behavioral control employed in the token economy, (4) techniques of behavioral science taught to traditional correctional officers, (5) techniques of the contingency management experiment, and (6) the new measuring instruments developed to determine an offender's adjustment to society and to predict recidivism. Phase I of this report is available in this issue as VT 018 119. (Author/AG)
