Inmate Manipulation in Corrections

2.0 Continuing Education Hours

Every day, inmates spend their time watching and waiting. They watch with deep interest all that occurs in the facility, waiting until they identify just the right person to target in their manipulation game. Often, inmates direct their attention to the healthcare staff, as healthcare staff are stereotypically sympathetic and wanting to be a helpful. This makes them an easy mark for the finely honed deception skills of these charismatic inmates. This class will review the game of manipulation, including how the target is chosen, and the techniques, tools and turnouts that are used.
