The primary purpose of this report is to examine the effects of different levels of confinement on inmates self-concepts in order to determine whether these levels of confinement act as agents or deterrents in the rehabilitation process. The effects of medium security confinement, characterized by multi-person cells, long periods of idleness, and restricted use of recreational facilities, are compared with effects of minimum security arrangements, in which living conditions are better and activities are less restricted. Background data on the subjects personal history are also investigated. Author
