Social Skills Training in Correctional Treatment: An Educational Perspective.
Goodrick, David D.; Reed, Thomas
The authors describe the utilization of psychological methods in training or retraining of prison guards/staff who engaged in an action project with prisoners. Social skills training, behavioral training and effective living approaches are described as they may be integrated into training of persons who work with inmates of correctional institutions. Also, a program of psychological study without application is described for college level courses, challenging clinical psychology to develop therapeutic approaches to deal with institutionalized persons within the criminal justice system. The state of the art is reviewed with specific recommendations for practical approaches to rehabilitation and coping more effectively with problems of inmates. (SBP)
