Corrections Culture Strength­Based Training

Client: Family Justice
Faculty: Christine Campbell
Team: " Seth Brown, Ming Ma, Kristy Roberts, Katie VanLangen, Jared Walkowitz"
Year: 2008
Family Justice sought for the Capstone team to add to its knowledge about its changing organizational culture in its pursuit to provide strength­based trainings to people who work in prisons. The Capstone team provided a literature review highlighting its research on corrections organizational culture and change. The literature review included information about creating sustainable culture change and considerations that are unique to corrections culture. Information gathered from the literature review and from interviews with professionals in the corrections field was then used to produce a white paper that details corrections culture change best practices that Family Justice can use to improve its training and technical assistance program in prisons.
