High Risk Parolees in Transition from Institution to Community Life.
McMurray, Harvey L.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v19 n1-2 p145-61 1993
Examined parolees released in three central North Carolina counties between July 1 and December 31, 1988. Findings indicated that many parolees wanted change of lifestyle and reported being motivated when released. Community factors (discrimination) and individual factors (finances, low self-esteem, drug use) appeared to hamper successful community adjustment. (Author/NB)
