Federal Bureau of Prison Wardens' Correctional Orientation to Rehabilitation
Date of Graduation
Master of Public Administration
Over the past two decades, the ideology governing correctional policy has been transformed, it is claimed, from a liberal-rehabilitative orientation to a more conservative-punitive orientation. Little empirical information is available, however, on whether those who manage correctional institutions, prison wardens, exhibit a punitive or reformative orientataion to their work. Data from a survey of Federal Bureau of Prison Wardens indicate that while placing a prime emphasis on maintaining custody and institutional order, the correctional orientation was not influenced by individual, career, and/or organizational variables.
