    schema:description ""Living in Prison: The Ecology of Survival" makes a ... contribution to environmental psychology from a transactional perspective. From a series of some 900 ... interviews with prisoners and staff in New York correctional institutions, Toch and his colleagues identified eight areas of predominant inmate concern: privacy, activity, structure, support, emotional feedback, social stimulation, activity, and freedom. On the basis of these dimensions, an innovative psychological instrument, the Prison Preference Inventory, was developed and administered to 2,650 inmates in five major prison systems. The analysis of these data leads to a ... consideration of the match between inmate and setting, as well as valuable suggestions for the improvement of person-environment transactions in prisons and in other human environments.
