Content By: Hausam, J., Lehmann, R. J. B., and Dahle, K. (2020). A person-centered approach to prison behavior based on officers’ observations: Relations to risk, prison misconduct, and recidivism, Frontiers in Psychiatry, 11(241), 1-14. 

Course Description: Staff in correctional settings continually review risk assessments to help inform management and treatment efforts directed at “preventing” rather than “predicting” future risk. The incorporation of behavior measures into risk assessment and management procedures may be beneficial for treatment planning, risk monitoring, and decision-making. The importance of focusing on broad patterns of inmate behavior was illustrated in this study to provide a better classification approach for research and correctional practice, to further advance the understanding of prison behavior, to match inmates with appropriate treatment methods, and to predict future offending. The structured assessment of behavioral observations by prison officers may be a valuable and easy-to-implement assessment approach.

  2. Analyze the data by exploring the 5 subtypes used in the article in conjunction with the discussed hypotheses/findings
