Federal Offenders Rehabilitation Collaboration Research Program.
This paper gives the specifics of a federal offenders rehabilitation program implementation and evaluation which will test and demonstrate the effects of providing intensive vocational rehabilitation services to federal offenders. The authors note that criminal offenders have difficulty in vocational adjustment, and this is exacerbated by their criminal status. Despite this, the criteria for rehabilitation services are limited to mentally or physically handicapped prisoners. The project is designed to provide and evaluate such services to larger segments of federal prison inmates; thus, the research program will attempt to contribute to the field of rehabilitation through the empirical evaluation of "current" as contrasted to "intensive" services offered to federal offenders, as well as ascertaining the effects of such variables as time of service. The paper details the various aspects of the project, such as choice of institutions, exact dimensions to be studied, controls, design, and methods of evaluation.
