Abstract

This study examines the effect of Psychoanalysis and Positive Psychology Intervention (PPPI) in reducing the level of aggression and depression on prison inmates in Malaysia. A second purpose of the study was to examine the effect of PPP Intervention increasing the level of ability to change among young inmates. The study was a quasi-experimental pre-post test involving two groups of 144 young inmates (18-21 years) in one prison in North Malaysia. The treatment group (72) was exposed to 15 sessions of PPP intervention over sixteen days, while the control group was only given the pre-post test questionnaire. ANCOVA analysis results among the group showed that the Intervention was effective in significantly reducing the level of aggression and depression among the study sample. Furthermore, the results show that the intervention was effective in increasing the level of ability to change. It is recommended that PPP Intervention be used as a tool to help inmates to reduce the negative feelings among young inmates. This is the first study of this nature.
