Impact of Horticultural Therapy on Psychosocial Functioning Among Urban Jail Inmates 

12-11-2012 03:55 PM

Authors: Jay S. Rice and Linda L. Remy Year of Publication: 1998 Country of Study: USA The authors of this study identified a lack of statistical evaluations of horticulture programs in the scholarly literature. Thus, the objective of this study was to provide an empirical evaluation of a horticulture therapy program in an inner-city jail. It specifically focused on the psychosocial functioning of jail inmates in a correctional facility operated by the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department. The key issue was whether access to gardening in correctional facilities has positive effects.
