This study examined the influence of two sets of variables (individual and institutional variables) on trainees' perceptions of the correctional program. The correctional institutional environment scale developed by Moos (1975) was completed by 115 juvenile offenders at DeWitt Nelson School in California Youth Authority at Stockton. Results indicated that intra institutional variables were the significant factors in explaining most of the variability on trainees' scores on the questionnaire.
