Melina Crespi and Isabel M. Mikulic from Universidad de Buenos Aires


This work studies the social reintegration of individuals who have served a sentence and regained their freedom. Social reintegration is understood as a phenomenon that integrates different levels of analysis: micro, meso and macro. 160 parolees of the City of Buenos Aires were administered the following instruments: Interview to assess Future Perspective, Community Social Support Questionnaire, Scale of Prejudice, Social Reintegration Questionnaire, Coping Responses Inventory and Life Satisfaction Scale. Multiple regression analysis showed that the variables that best predict the social reintegration of parolees are: social prejudice, behavioral coping responses by approach, life satisfaction, feasibility of future goals, age of onset in the crime, attitude future time and social support. These results have practical implications for psychosocial intervention linked to reintegration and the prevention of recidivism.
