Abstract

This article is an incomplete presentation of the second part of the follow-up study on the evidence of age-related peculiarities of personality's preparedness to resocialize during the post-penitentiary period. Earlier, we were able to create and successfully test psychodiagnostic and psychocorrective programs for the resocialization of a delinquent person at the stage of release from prison. The A.R. Ratinov's value and standards theory of a criminal's personality is used as a basis for analysis and comparison of the subjects' system of value orientations. 201 individuals have been examined. The obtained results indicate that the subjects have lowered values in three categories of cognitive concept of personality's basic beliefs. The significance of the age factor in the subjects has been reliably found in such scales as «a tendency to force others to fit one's wants/tastes», «a tendency to change others», «categoricalness towards others», «inability to adjust oneself to others» and so on. Subjects have been found with manifestly excessive predisposition to aggression.
