McCorkle, Richard C.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v19 n1-2 p27-41 1993
Examined relationship between fear of victimization and mental health among prison inmates (n=300) in maximum-security facility. Regression analysis was used to identify independent effects of institutional stresses, social supports, victimization, and fear. Findings showed, controlling for preexisting disorders, level of fear as an extremely important predictor of general well-being. (Author/NB)
