Summary

This research and demonstration project tested the contributions of comprehensive social, psychological, and vocational rehabilitation services to the reduction of recidivism rates, the enhancement of vocational stability and occupational levels, and the personal adjustment of parolees from the Minnesota State Reformatory for Men. The project centered around an experimental design in which offenders released with parole sentences of 18 months or more were randomly assigned to either a control group that received normal services or an experimental group that received comprehensive services during the first year following release. Services to experimental subjects were adapted to fit the unique configuration of each individual's needs. The chief innovations of the project were its comprehensive interdisciplinary-team nature. , the emphasis on vocational adjustment as a primary means to total life adjustment, the sophistication of the vocational evaluation process, the commitment to seeking education and training for high-risk clients, the provision of immediate comprehensive post-release services, the release period, and the use of an experimental design to compare outcomes of treated parolees with those of offenders receiving normal parole supervision. In terms of recidivism at one year, the experimental had a better record than controls. (AUTHOR)
