Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine the attitudes of three Oregon State Penitentiary minority inmate groups - Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans - towards the Activities Programs as a rehabilitative tool. Two other purposes were to (1) determine significant differences among group attitudes, and (2) determine the degree to which each group accepted/rejected rehabilitation achievement. A survey questionnaire of fifty items representing rehabilitation achievement, validated by Delphi technique, was amended for language simplicity and field tested. Instruments were distributed to participating inmates randomly selected from the Oregon State Penitentiary inmate registry. A one-way analysis of variance was applied for analysis of data and hypothesis testing. The Student-Newman-Keuls' test was used where significance was achieved at the .05 level or beyond. The Chi-square technique was also used to determine the degree to which rehabilitation achievement was attained among the three groups. Findings and Conclusions The one-way analysis of variance indicated that no significant difference existed in thirty of the fifty items. As a result of the findings, the following conclusions were drawn: (1) Black attitudes were significantly different than Native Americans and Hispanic attitudes regarding rehabilitation achievement through program management. (2) Blacks' attitudes were significantly different than Native Americans regarding rehabilitation achievement through facility provision. (3) Black and Hispanic attitudes were significantly different than Native Americans regarding rehabilitative achievement through personal habits/participation. (4) Black attitudes were evenly split on the concept of rehabilitation achievement for the Activities Program. (5) Hispanic attitudes rejected slightly the concept of rehabilitation achievement for the Activities Program. (6) Native Americans rejected the concept of rehabilitation achievement for the Activities Program.
