The research utilized behavioral science training of military correctional personnel as one means for promoting planned, positive change within the Naval criminal justice system. It focused primarily upon members of the U.S. Marine Corps assigned to three correctional facilities of the 11th Naval District. A team of behavioral science consultants conducted two identical, experimental courses for military correctional staffs. Group training experience developed around twelve learning modules in which thirteen consultants designed, conducted, and evaluated the project for some sixty subjects. The majority of the participants were noncommissioned officers, but ranged in military rank from private first class to lieutenant. After the course, they completed post-forms of data-gathering devices. The major topical theme was understanding human behavior, and ranged from deviant to group behavior.
