Behavior Therapy in Prisons: Waldon II or Clockwork Orange?
Saunders, Arpiar G., Jr.
This paper reflects an attempt to chronicle the events, articles, and hearings which concerned the application of behavior technology in adult prison systems between January 1, 1973 and November 1, 1974. The events of this time period are viewed by the author as demanding the attention of behavior therapists, legislators, correctional officials, attorneys, and, of course, the subject (or object) prisoners themselves. This document reports briefly on the efforts of behavior modifiers who have studied prison systems and attempted to develop conditioning technologies for those whose past rehabilitative efforts have been reported to "have had no appreciable effect on recidivism."
