Selected Readings from SCMTC (Southeast Correctional Management Training Council) Seminars.
McConkie, Mark L., Ed.; Morton, Joann B., Ed.
This selection of readings is designed to assist correctional managers with their particular concerns such as planning, organizing, understanding the client, and utilizing volunteers. The first article deals generally with the functions and problems of the innovator and planner, without dealing specifically with the correctional setting. The second addresses such issues as the philosophies underlying correctional systems, types of reform needed, relations of the facility to the community and state-local institutions. The third attempts to analyze organizations in general and correctional facilities in particular. It also addresses the problems of quality of personnel, goals, and means. The next attempts, by describing the situation of the poor and disadvantaged, to give correctional personnel sensitivity to the viewpoint of those usually placed in corrective custory. The last article warns that inmates should be protected from inequities in the system, and examines some of the societal elements which often lead the poor and underprivileged toward criminal behavior.
