Abstract

In the past fifteen to twenty years, penal reform has undergone a structural and service model trend toward vocational training and counseling. In many state penal facilities inmates can now take advantage of vocational/technical training and even obtain external degrees through correspondence programs with local colleges and universities. There is a need to supplement these training efforts by preparing inmates emotionally and socially for the kinds of pressures they will face upon release. The high rates of recidivism, substance abuse and unemployment represented by the ex-offender population are highly indicative of the special needs of this group .
