This paper presents the literature review and a formal research proposal for a study to determine if a Corrective Thinking Program in the Community Correctional Center positively affects behavior, education, life style and recidivism rates in inmates who undertake this training for six months. This paper examines a new model, Corrective Thinking Curriculum, being tested to help inmates at one correctional center break down their destructive ways of behaving. This paper discusses that the central tenet of this model is classical conditioning models of learning.

From the Paper:

"Correction center officials are often reluctant to allow inmates any discretion; while this is understandable on many levels, it also is, in general, counterproductive at least with the majority of inmates. If inmates are never given the chance to receive positive reinforcement for their behavior, it is unlikely, in the extreme, that their behavior will change before they are released. The Corrective Thinking Curriculum is designed to change this self-defeating cycle."
