An Evaluation of Selected Rehabilitative Services Offered at the Utah State Prison.
White, David Virgil, Jr.
The basic purpose of the study was to assess the sociological and psychological factors affecting the inmates of the Utah State Prison and to determine their apparent value on the inmates' successful adjustment. The population consisted of 668 inmates who participated in vocational training between 1958 and 1968. All participants for whom addresses were available were either personally contacted or mailed a questionnaire. Special interviews were obtained from prison personnel, and direct observation was made of selected programs. It is concluded that those prisoners who have participated in rehabilitation programs at Utah State Prison have been favorably affected by them in their adjustment to society upon release. However, additional and expanded programs are necessary. Also, a greater amount of the prisoner population must be involved in the vocational and rehabilitation programs. A bibliography and the information collection instruments are appended. (Author/MS)
