GARCIA-JARILLO, M.; CARAVACA-SANCHEZ, F.; SANCHEZ-ALCARAZ, C.  and  LUNA, A.. Psychosocial stressors perceived in the process of social reintegration and compliance time remaining in prison sentence. Rev. esp. sanid. penit. [online]. 2016, vol.18, n.2, pp.49-95. ISSN 2013-6463.

Introduction: This study shows the results obtained from evaluating the main psychosocial stressors perceived in the process of social reintegration and their relation to a remaining sentence time in prison. Material and methods: A questionnaire based on an ad hoc design was administered, using a Likert scale, with a total of 383 inmates serving sentences in southeast Spain. Results: Findings show that inmates with a remaining sentence period of more than one year, like those who had served more than a year of their sentence, showed greater concern about possible economic difficulties. Conclusions: The psychosocial stressors studied might provide relevant information to facilitate the process of social reintegration after the completion of a prison sentence.
