Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

Prison-reform initiatives are expected to increase the number of released inmates. There are few OTs working in this setting, and the number of practitioners considering employment in this setting is unknown. Two research studies will be presented related to this issue. Both are first steps toward understanding the attitudes of those in our profession about rehabilitation of inmates as well as factors associated with willingness to work in the prison system.
