Summary
[This book] presents the results of one of the largest studies ever undertaken of the stress and suffering of men and women in jail and prison. The first part of this revised edition presents three major types of personal breakdowns as they relate to coping/adjusting to the environment, perception of self and one's relationship to others, and impulse management. Part II examines the relationship between crisis themes and personal background factors and considers how factors such as sex and ethnic background relate to coping strategies. Part III presents psychological autopsies of men who committed suicide in prison. Finally, Part IV reviews the implications of the author's findings for crisis intervention efforts and also explores some issues related to the prevention, management, and amelioration of breakdowns.
