The Experimental Manpower Laboratory for Corrections: Phase I. Final Report (September 1, 1968-March 1, 1970).
Rehabilitation Research Foundation, Elmore, AL.
Five studies were conducted by the Experimental Manpower Laboratory for Corrections (EMLC) during this reporting period. One dealt with barriers to the employment of released offenders; another examined the post-release economic status of the offender, and still another dealt with factors within the prison environment which appeared to markedly affect a manpower training effort. A fourth study sought to modify the substandard speech of a group of offenders. The fifth study was a preliminary assessment of the success of the Alabama State Employment Service in securing training-related employment for prisoner trainees. During this period the EMLC centrally administered the Department of Labor's Bonding Program. Phase II of this report is available in this issue as VT 018 075. (Author/AG)
