Oregon Department of Corrections’ Wellness & Resiliency Pilot Program (WRP): Contrasting Pre-Post Survey Measures Between WRP and a Comparison Group (2015)

In the spring of 2013 the Oregon Department of Corrections (henceforth referred to as the 'department') began a collaboration with the Prison Mindfulness Institute to explore the efficacy of mindfulness/ meditation practice to promote wellness and resiliency of staff working in the department?s prisons. The goal of this project was to learn more about how introducing staff to basic mindfulness/ meditation skills might impact staff climate/culture and individual staff?s self-awareness and emotional resiliency.
