In this case study of a large urban area's probation department, the priority, method, and outcome of the probation-supervision process are examined and discussed in relation to six selected major theories of socialization (psychoanalytic, self-other, cognitive-developmental, classical conditioning, operant conditioning, and social learning). Ten case histories of adult criminal probationers are examined.
