Those sentenced to prison bring with them individual characteristics acquired prior to incarceration. This study assesses the effect of pre-prison experiences on adjustment to the prison environment. Regression analysis indicates that pre-prison experiences are significantly related to the likelihood of participating in, or being exposed to, elements of the incarceration experience that may cause Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms (PTSS).

A second component of this study assesses the relationship between elements of the incarceration experience and PTSS. Regression analysis indicates that aspects of the incarceration experience constitute traumatic stressors that cause PTSS is some individuals. This study also assesses the relationship between pre-prison experiences and PTSS, independent of the incarceration experience, as well as assessing the relationship between a combination of the pre-prison and in-prison independent variables with development of PTSS. Data for this study are drawn from surveys administered to 208 men released from prison in a Midwestern state.

Corrections and Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms has application for courses in criminal justice, criminal justice policy and programs, criminological theory, psychology, psychiatry, methods, and techniques of statistical analysis.
