MAP [Mutual Agreement Program] Program Outcomes in the Initial Demonstration States: An Evaluative Summary of Research. Resource Document Number 7.
Rosenfeld, Anne H.
Mutual Agreement Programming (MAP) is an innovative technique, developed under Department of Labor sponsorship, designed to increase the efficacy and humanity of prisoner rehabilitative programs and the parole review process. It was tried on an experimental demonstration basis in institutions in Wisconsin, California, and Arizona during 1972-73. The reader should recognize that this report is a summary of a single research study of MAP as initially implemented at the three sites, and that it addresses only some of the objectives of MAP that have been mentioned in earlier resource documents. The attempt in the last chapter to set forth some of the unresolved issues relative to the various objectives of the MAP, hopefully, will clarify the nature of some questions that need to be addressed, both by decision-makers and researchers.
