A sample of 84 male young offenders, admitted for inpatient treatment in a psychiatric hospital, was used to examine the relationship between leisure motivation, leisure satisfaction, and perceived freedom in leisure using the Leisure Motivation Scale (LMS), the Leisure Satisfaction Scale (LSS), and the Perceived Freedom in Leisure Scale-Short Form Version A (PFS), respectively. All 3 inventories were completed as part of the pre-treatment assessment on the third week following admission. Age was not significantly correlated with any of the measures. All but 2 of the correlations between the 4 LMS scales and the 6 LSS scales were statistically significant and all 24 correlations were positive. Significant negative correlations were obtained between the PFS total score and all LMS and LSS scales. Three factors emerged from a principal components analysis, and the varimax rotated factors were labeled freedom-to engage, freedom-from constraints, and freedom-physical. Implications for therapeutic interventions are discussed. (Contains 3 tables.)
