Speech Training for Inmate Rehabilitation.
Parkinson, Michael G.; Dobkins, David H.
Communication Education, v31 n3 p239-44 Jul 1982

They conclude that two to four hours of public speaking training can have only limited effect on students who live in a culture in which "prison speech" is the expected and rewarded form of behavior.
