Mª Del Mar Lorenzo Moledo, Miguel A. Santos Rego y Antonio Rodríguez Martínez


In this article we present a program of pedagogical intervention for the development, among others, of values in women internal in penitentiary centres. It deals with the development of values in imprisoned women from the application of strategies of pedagogical intervention directed to the development of the prosocial thought; these strategies are concentrated on a program of delinquent rehabilitation from the cognitive training, basing itself on a comprehensive model. This program (Prosocial Thought) was put into practice experimentally to a group of women internal in a penitentiary centre in Galicia. The evaluation of the program allows us to assure the efficacy of the same to develop among the inmates the skills and attitudes necessary for their reeducation and social rehabilitation.
