Homant, Robert J.; Dean, Douglas G.
Journal of Offender Counseling, Services & Rehabilitation, v12 n2 p19-40 Spr-Sum 1988
Tested model of offender career maturity by dividing 211 inmates into groups based on self-esteem and prisonization (taking on of prison culture). Compared groups on job planning, job attitudes, and stigmatization. Contrary to model, high self-esteem and low prisonization were both correlated significantly with higher scores on job planning and job attitudes. (Author/BH)
