Summary

Abstract

Correctional workers are divided on many issues. One point, however, on which there is general agreement is that the effectiveness of prison rehabilitation programme is dependent upon community backing. Trade, vocational and other forms of prison training are of little benefit if the discharged prisoner returns to a hostile, unaccepting community.
