Summary
"This book attempts to analyze some of the mental health problems or psychiatric aspects of correctional institutional procedure. The authors of this book question by implication whether the present state of scientific knowledge concerning human conduct and behavior is being applied to penal and correctional procedure. A medical service for any penal and correctional system of given jurisdiction must bear a direct relationship to those agencies that minister to the physical and mental health of the general population. The place which correctional institutions and forensic and psychiatric medicine must occupy eventually in such a scheme remains to be determined. A formal recording of the psychiatric problems among prisoners, however, is a step in that general direction, and represents an effort to apply our scientific knowledge in terms of social values"--Introduction.
