Overview Psychology in Prisons argues that the sources of inmates' violence and stress can be better understood and limited by applying psychological principles to prison behavior. The authors show how psychology can be used to increase our understanding of prisoners by examining how and why they became involved in crime and how they have adapted to prison life. The authors focus on key areas of tension and ``problem groups,'' as well as sex offenders and the issue of AIDS. The book also considers prison workers and explores how psychological principles can reduce their level of stress, thereby securing the mental well-being of the prisoners they oversee.
