Prison inmates have a multitude of serious attitudinal, mental health, and behavior problems. The incidence of adjustment difficulties, violence, antisocial attitudes, sub- stance (alcohol and other drugs) abuse and stress-related disorders among inmates exceeds the norms for all age groups.
Effective remediation is largely contingent upon early problem identification. The Prison Inmate Inventory (PII) enables early problem identification and enhances inmate rehabilitation. The PII has been standardized on thousands of prison inmates and each PII scale (domain) assesses important inmate attitudes, disorders, and behaviors.
