Abstract:

The main objective was to scrutinize systematically a number of social work practices in the field of corrections. The study was limited to two aspects of short term confinement facilities for young adult males convicted primarily of military type offenses, within the U.S. Army correctional system. One aspect dealt with discriminating between control oriented and treatment oriented settings. The other was a determination of whether constellations of social work practice behaviors in one kind of setting were different from practice behavior patterns in the other kind of setting. Control involves custody, security, treatment and rehabilitation. Seven patterns of behaviors were developed.
