Annotation: Shifting correctional philosophies and institutional policies have contributed to what psychiatrist Humphry Osmond calls the 'model muddle.'
Abstract: The present article, based on analysis and speculation of a few investigations in the field of sexually integrated prisons (co-corrections), finds that co-correctional institutions suffer from a unique muddle of programmatic and nonprogrammatic models that clash over institutional goals to value the male-female relationship on the one hand and to serve system needs on the other.
