Behavior Modification Said Effective In Prison Program SOMERS, Conn. (AP) -- Con- eclicut; corrections officials ay they are pleased with the uccess thus far of a con- roversial program that uses lectric shack treatment and sychological conditioning on i serving terms for rnolest- ng children. Roger Wolfe, administralor of he program, says that in the ast 18 months, 11 men who ave undergone the treatment ave been released from the late prison- here. None have een rearrested for sexual of- enses, he says. And while Wolfe says it is inevitable" that one of those nvolved will be rearrested, he opes the program will be 70 to 0 per cent successful. The treatment involves chan- eling the behaivor of the con- r icts into socially accepted pat- erns. They undergo a three- tage treatment aimed at mak- ng them desire sex with wom- n rather than children. Civil libertarians critical ol he program say irrmates par- icipate because they believe it enhance their chances ol jarole. And the U.S. Bureau of Prisons has said it is discontinuing its behavior modi- ication program. State Correction Commission cr John R. Manson, however, says he is prepared to 'go to court to keep the Connccticu program and calls the federa iecision "gutless." Manson says the altcrnalive is to keep ; o n v i c t e d child moIesterF ocked tip for longer periods since parole boards are reluc ant to grant early parole to sex offenders. Wolfe says that the officials r u n n i n g the program often are skeptical about the sincerity o those wishing to enter. But hi says the motivation level o most inmates is high becausi "it's not nice to be a child mo lester. If you're a j u n k i e yu can find all sorts of peer sup port. . . . If you're a bank robber, you're admired." The program uses just lha motivation to change the in mate d u r i n g the behavior modi fication program.
