Summary Correctional psychology is an area of specialization that has recently enjoyed explosive growth along with the burgeoning United States prison population and the renewed interest in providing correctional rehabilitation programs that reduce inmate recidivism. This completely revised and updated second edition continues to provide an overview of empirical findings and practices in the field. The text focuses specifically on the psychologist's role within a correctional setting and clarifies the differences in working with inmates and correctional staff from populations more commonly encountered.
