The aim of the article is to develop (interpretation, continuation) the last paragraph of my – a scientific study –<br>publication, taking into account the achievements of contemporary pedagogy, penitentiary psychology and teaching of the Church’s Magisterium: Destigmatization of criminals in the light of the Church’s Magisterium and views on rehabilitation. As part of my pedagogical and social rehabilitation considerations, in accordance with the pronunciation of the Church’s Magisterium, I formulated a concept (in harmony with the broadly understood humanist<br>and existential trend, including humanistic and positive psychology, as well as axiological education directed at the personality potential of a human being). I called the personalistic axiology of resocialization. The methodology used to write this publication was to conduct a critical analysis of literature, including my work and other documents, including available Internet resources.</p> 2019-10-18T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The role and meaning of shame in the process of abandoning crime 2019-10-18T20:25:53+02:00 Aneta Skuza <p>In psychology, I assume that shame is an emotion that plays an important role in the social development of the individual, the development of self-control mechanisms and the shaping of self-image. As Kurtz emphasizes, experiencing shame is an experience of revealing itself not only to others, but also to yourself. Therefore, conscious shame has the characteristics of reintegrating and restoring ties. He draws attention to this in his theory of crime, shame and reintegration of J. Braithwaite, where he argues that the lowest crime is where shame and guilt play the greatest role. In order for shame to work, a special kind is needed: a reintegration shame. It makes it possible to understand evil, but it does not exclude people from the community and does not exclude people – thus creates a much better perspective for criminal justice as well as for the quality of life of individuals and the whole community. Thus, shame can become an important factor in&nbsp;the process of abandoning crime.<br>the process of abandoning crime.</p> 2019-10-18T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Preventing secondary victimisation of disabled people 2019-10-19T12:07:43+02:00 Małgorzata Bilewicz <p>Secondary victimisation is an act of further (repeated) harm inflicted towards a victim by people to whom they requested for help. The phenomenon takes on significance in reference to disabled people who due to violated mental and physical efficiency are especially exposed to experience harm. Therefore, every possible effort should be taken in order not to make a victim of crime incur further harm – also caused by people whose goal and obligation, by virtue of their occupation, is to bring help to such a victim. The article is an attempt to indicate actions which will protect disabled people from secondary victimisation particularly experienced from official workers.</p> 2019-10-18T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Possibilities of improving the efficiency of social readaptation measures in the conditions of penitentiary isolation 2019-10-19T12:12:07+02:00 Witold Kędzierski <p>The purpose of this article is to show the causes of disfunctionality of rehabilitation as conducted in the Polish penitentiary system, which proves to be inefficient in preparing inmates for social readaptation. It diagnoses the causes of lack of effectivity of individual influence programs and worsening of inmate conduct, which act against forming positive environment in penitentiary institutions. It also outlines the possibilities of improving the efficiency of social readaptation measures that are attainable through changing the organizational structure of penitentiary institutions and shifting the paradigm of the influence of correctional measures.</p> 2018-10-18T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Hope and self-efficacy in the process of desistance from crime 2019-10-19T12:20:13+02:00 Krzysztof Biel <p>The process of desistance from crime is placed between individual human choices and his participation in wider social life. Success depends therefore on both individual and social factors that affect the person from outside. Among the subjective factors, the category of hope and self-efficacy plays a more and more important role. Research shows that people who are diagnosed with a high level of hope and self-efficacy can cope better in difficult situations and have a better chance of going straight. The article presents research conducted among 90 convicts serving their sentences for the first time. The aim of the research was to measure the level of hope and self-efficacy and to show the relationship between variables. Half of the respondents achieved a high level of hope and self-efficacy, and hope is a significant predictor of their own effectiveness.</p> 2018-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Pedagogical and educational role of the National Safety Threats Map – a new form of local community dialogue with the Police 2019-10-19T12:21:50+02:00 Iwona Klonowska, 543542 Jadwiga Stawnicka <p>Basic need of a human being is the sense of security. Co-operation with external entities have an enormous influence on implementation of the statutory tasks of the Police Forces in the field of ensuring security and public order of the State At present, Polish Police has noticed the importance of society in preventing and fighting crime. The example is a National Safety Risk Map interactive tool where inhabitants can anonymously report information about threats appearing in their neighbourhood forcing appropriate service to react as also radical change of a constable’s work by bringing it closer to citizens. The article is devoted<br>to pedagogical and educational role of the National Safety Threats Map.

The essence of the idea is: how to help a “doubly” marked person – due to their disability and prison isolation – regain personal dignity and independence, to the extent of their capacity and needs, and participate in social life. Based on the holistic model of disability, the situation of imprisoned inmates was considered from an interactive perspective, taking into account actions directed at people with disabilities (therapeutic/rehabilitative actions) as well as their physical and social environment (normative activities). As a result of the analysis of available resources (literature of the subject, reports and journalistic materials), numerous shortcomings in the organization and the course of aid activities undertaken in penitentiary units for disabled prisoners were pointed&nbsp;out, which in turn resulted in their negligible effectiveness.</p> <p>ess.</p> 2018-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## The feeling of territorial identification and the intensity of antisocial behaviour in a group of maladjusted adolescents 2019-10-19T12:24:11+02:00 Karol Konaszewski Tomasz Prymak Sebastian Rutkowski Alfred Tuci <p>The purpose of the article is to present selected results of research into the feeling of territorial identification in a group of adolescents suffering from maladjustment in the context of their antisocial behaviour. In the case of the present research, the feeling of identification is hierarchically related to five circles: residential, regional, national, European and global. The research was conducted using the diagnostic opinion poll method, within the scope of which the survey technique was utilised. In order to construct a picture of defective social functioning, the thesis employs the Social Maladjustment Scale by Lesław Pytka. In total, 481 pupils of youth educational centres were surveyed. Statistical data analysis did not indicate any differences in the feelings of territorial identification related to the intensity level of antisocial behaviour in the group of adolescents from youth educational centres.<br>behaviour in the group of adolescents from youth educational centres.</p> 2018-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Individualisation of the social rehabilitation measures at the youth educational centres 2019-10-19T12:25:26+02:00 Michał Kranc <p>The article explains the notion of individualisation of the social rehabilitation measures. In addition the author refers to the findings of its own research of different forms of individualisation of the social rehabilitation measures applied in practice in the youth educational centres. The author identifies the need for the rationalisation of the social rehabilitation process in the researched centres through, among others, the introduction of the uniform daily schedules and the core curriculum of social rehabilitation. Such solutions should lead to better organisation and specification of the social rehabilitation measures.</p> 2018-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Independent. The process of self-empowerment in biographical experiences of former pupils of resocialization institutions. 2019-10-19T12:31:57+02:00 Agnieszka Jaros <p>Article is about the self-empowerment process of woman, who in the past were under control of formal institutions. To illustrate the raised issues ten narrative interviews (including appropriate analytical procedure F. Schütze) were conducted with women who were in youth educational center in the past. On the basis of this analysis I conducted a reconstruction of methods of supporting in process of self- empowerment revealed in individual experiences of the examined individuals. On the one hand, the process of self-empowerment promote (facilitates) social readaptation. On the other hand, the financial help on continuing education which doesn’t link to independent life and help to obtaining adequate housing, including a social house usually allocated people in dysfunctional society, it is only seeming to help.</p> 2019-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Meanings given to punishment by recidivists from Prison in Wołów 2019-10-19T12:43:55+02:00 Karolina Woźny <p>Concept of punishment is strongly connected with penology. Justice system is punishing<br>criminals to make them change and discourage them from inappropriate behaviour. I as<br>a scientist, was interested in question: what prisoners who reoffends repeatedly think about<br>punishment, effectiveness and necessity of this. In theoretical part of my publication I described<br>how scientist write about purpose and functions of punishment. I did that because<br>I want to compare scientific theory with reality. I was talked to ten recidivists from Prison in<br>Wołów and every conversation was different, so my conclusions are not ambiguous. There<br>is a need to make more research.</p> 2018-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Individualization of social rehabilitation interventions directed to socially maladjusted young people – towards effective social readaptation conducted by the Department of Juvenile Probation in New York 2019-10-19T12:44:41+02:00 Emilia Wołyniec-Kurkowska <p>The category of juvenile delinquents in the American social rehabilitation system is subject to<br>special interest of social services. The priority status of all juvenile affairs is reflected in the<br>numerous proposals to support teenagers in court proceedings. They are characterized by<br>dropped out the policy of absolute punishment in order to find effective solutions enabling<br>the individual to social rehabilitation without having to put it in an isolation institution. This<br>article describes the methods of environmental work using social rehabilitation programs<br>implemented with the participation of the local community in New York. In addition, the<br>article discusses the classification of juvenile delinquents, to referral the procedure of legal<br>proceedings against teenagers, and the levels of probation. The observations in the paper on<br>the practical dimension of educational measures for socially maladjusted young people were<br>drawn up on the basis of an internship held by the New York Juvenile Probation Department.<br><br>programs.</p> 2018-10-19T00:00:00+02:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
