Abstract

This article aims to develop and experimentally validate a psychodiagnostic program for
persons deprived of liberty, which provides clear directions for recommending psychosocial programs
so as to ensure that positive behavioral changes are observed after completing them. Furthermore, this
study focuses on highlighting the importance of developing a psychodiagnostic program for
incarcerated people to establish more effective methods of intervention and inclusion in various
psychosocial programs that contribute effectively to their behavioral change.
