The Impact of Confinement on Juveniles.
Thomas, Charles W.; And Others
Youth and Society, v14 n3 p301-19 Mar 1983
Research among male juvenile delinquents in a custodial training facility showed that: (1) the subjects exhibited attitudes that reflected their "prisonization" (assimilation into the inmates' nonformal normative system); (2) many of the juveniles felt alienated from the institutional environment; and (3) prisonization often led to reinvolvement in delinquent behavior.
