Some Ruminations about Prison Mental Health Work.
Toch, Hans
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v22 n1-2 p21-28 1995
Describes incidents involving mental health services in prison facilities that illustrate "Catch-22" situations, in many of which inmates perceive clinicians as people who "come to watch you drown instead of throwing you a rope." Proposes a supplementation of "administrative clinical" thinking with nonbureaucratic, collaborative efforts to assist inmates. (Author/KW)
