Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine treatment programs in large correctional institutions for women. In order to accomplish this goal a personality and interest inventory was used. It was assumed that by knowing what the personality and interests of female inmates are, a determination can be made about the programs needed to facilitate an inmate's re-entry process upon release from the penal institution.
