The Principles of Design and Implementation of the Activities in the Area of a Rehabilitative Sociotherapy. For Prisoners, Repeatedly Deprived of the Liberty


This article addresses the problem of designing a model of the effective sociotherapy in the system of rehabilitation of the prisoners. So far the classes of the sociotherapy were recognized and they are still treated as a field of a separate, specialized psychological help for young addicts or young people coming from families neglecting their educational functions. This is reflected in the history of sociotherapy in Poland. In the model proposed in the article, sociotherapy is an integral part of the system of psychological support. This system is important part of support for the activities, impacts and interventions of a purely rehabilitative nature. In the presented text author has outlined the shape of this system, with a particular focus on sociotherapy – consistent with an axiology of the rehabilitative pedagogy. He has adopted a cardinal thesis that the role of psychological help in the prison rehabilitation should be a gradual, processual and phased outputting of the convicted from the specific social excluding isolation, connected with the prohibited acts committed by him, to actively functioning in the different societal circles. The essential content of the psychological influence is a relatively controlled, escalating build-up and implementation of the socializing incentives. In the next part of this article the author pointed out, according to research of the research team led by the author as part of research and development project, the importance of an individual diagnosis, qualifying for the sociotherapy. Then he focused on the principles of the diagnosis of the individual in the socio-therapeutic group and of the diagnosis of the group as a resultant of the diagnosis of single units that create it. The main part of the article, on the basis of the integrated sociotherapy, shows the cardinal principles that should be used by the sociotherapeutic teams that are organized and operated in the prison, both organized from among prisoners and for Prison Service officers. The described principles can be also applied to the sociotherapies organized and operated in the open environments with socially unfit adults, whose primary concern is a criminal behavior. The summary indicated what are the central and boundary conditions for sociotherapy to gained rehabilitative function and that it could be its leading function. Author has also drawn an attention to the need of research and dialogue between researchers – theorists and therapists working in practice, centralized around the problem of constructing the statements of the sociotherapy praxeology with the prisoners and persons because of their criminal activities.
