Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1984 
105 p. 

This manual is a general operations guidebook designed to support staff and inmates in the operation of Network, an innovative, state-of-the-art, corrections and personal growth program. Section 1 provides a detailed overview of the program, which establishes living/learning units within correctional facilities supervised and operated by specially trained corrections officers and supervisors. The program provides an opportunity for inmates to learn life coping skills, and it enriches the role of the corrections officer in the process. This overview covers program membership, disciplinary procedures, leaving the program, and reentry. Section 2 discusses administrative procedures: staff meetings, recordkeeping, scheduling of officers, monthly reports, participant progress worksheets, and community standards. Section 3 provides information on implementation and administrative procedures for newly established programs. Section 4 concerns inmate recruitment, including announcing the program, application, selection criteria, and interviewing. Community jobs in the Network program are described in section 5. Section 6 discusses these program procedures: benefits of participation in groups, feedback, and group process. Types of groups used in the program are illustrated and procedures are suggested for running them. Section 7 contains staff duty descriptions that detail minimum qualifications; knowledge, skills, and abilities; and tasks and responsibilities. Appendixes contain sample forms. (YLB)
