Collaboration with CSD to investigate psychological wellbeing and changes of HK inmates


Our Study

In collaboration with the Correctional Services Department of Hong Kong (CSD), we are investigating the psychosocial changes exhibited by young offenders during their incarceration period. From the secondary data provided by CSD, we hope to identify predictive variables of recidivism, and are particularly interested in measuring changes in criminal attitudes, drug-related cognition, and interpersonal attitudes. We are also planning to conduct cross-sample comparisons of various psychosocial constructs by collecting data from CSD as well as the university sample.
