Abstract
In the article the issues of correction of the psychology content of the convict’s group sense of justice are considered in the context of activities to improve the measures of psychological and pedagogical influence on persons in prison. Based on the analysis of the materials of the research conducted by the author it is concluded that in the process of serving the sentence in the group legal consciousness of convicts, legal ideas about the injustice of the formal legal system are constructed. Under these conditions a significant role in the regulation of behavior begins to belong to the norms of behavior adopted in the prison community, which contributes to the criminalization and “prisonisation” of the consciousness of convicts. It justifies the need to carry out activities to minimize the asocial influence of the prison subculture both on persons in prison and on the staff of the penal system. The conclusion is made about the need for a differentiated approach to the conduct of psycho-correctional work on changing the legal representations of convicts. For those who are in prisons for the first time programs on group work and legal education are offered. Convicted persons who have been convicted several times mainly with those who have become disillusioned with their way of life and intend to change it, taking advantage of the law-abiding behavior, individual correctional work is recommended.

Keywords: convicts; group sense of justice; prison subculture; informal regulation; concept of risk assessment for recidivation; psycho-correctional work.
