    If a survey of psychologists currently working or who have substantial experience in correctional settings was conducted it would likely show that few anticipated that their careers would lead them to working in prison. If a survey of graduate and professional training programs in psychology was conducted, few courses in correctional psychology would be discovered. Most of us, who have spent a substantial part of our professional careers behind the walls and razor wire began with little or no formal training or guidance on how to provide psychological services in prison. So it was with enthusiasm and optimism that I approached Towl's "Psychology in Prisons" a hope that here would be an authoritative guide that would begin to fill the gap in training on working in this unique and challenging environment.
