One of the main recommendations of the Control Review Committee which considered the management of the long-term prison population was that a system of special units be set up for long-term prisoners who present serious control problems. This report documents the first two years of the first such unit, established a Parkhurst Prison in 1985. It consists of three papers focusing on different aspects of the Parkhurst Unit's first two years: a detailed descriptive account by the prison psychologist who was part of the unit's management team; a psychiatric study of inmates which was commissioned from the Institute of Psychiatry; and an evaluation of the unit by a leading criminologist.
