Results and Analysis

RPC Program Objective # 5 - Increase the ability of inmates to control their anger and aggressive behaviors in group and interpersonal situations as demonstrated by a reduction of disciplinary reports received for demonstrations of violent behavior.

The salient points in examining the results of the RPC based on Program Objective # 5 are, as follows:

  • Table 5 indicates that the RPC program has been very effective in having inmates control their anger in group and interpersonal situations. As shown for Category C, the RPC Group inmates were only about 20% as likely to get a DR resulting in injury when compared to the Pre-RPC Group inmates (13 versus 61).
  • This effect can be somewhat seen for Category A, where the RPC Group inmates had no DR's of this type while the Pre-RPC Group had 2. But again, the major effect occurred in Category B where there were 46 fewer such DR's for the RPC Group compared to the Pre-RPC Group (only 13 compared to 59 for the previous year).

CONCLUSION - The RPC Program Objective # 5 to increase the ability of inmates to control their anger and aggressive behaviors in group and interpersonal situations as demonstrated by a reduction of disciplinary reports received for demonstrations of violent behavior was met to a very high degree.
