Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 900–901. Reviews the book, Community Treatment and Social Control: A Critical Analysis of Juvenile Correctional Policy by Paul Lerman (1975). Paul Lerman's contributions in this book are many, but among the more important are his documenting the nature and scope of this confusion, and his description of how programs designed originally to change the behavior of others instead may change more the behavior of program personnel. The Community Treatment Project (CTP) and California's probation subsidy program are the objects of Lerman's evaluative scrutiny, and using these settings, Lerman spells out a short history of cprrectional bungling and short sightedness.
