Assume you are a correctional psychologist working at a high security institution (i.e., a United States Penitentiary, aka a USP). You conduct routine Special Housing Unit (SHU) rounds and encounter an inmate who requests psychological services. He explains he has been in the SHU for approximately four months and describes feeling anxious. Upon further inquiry, he reveals he “feels anxious” about when he will be released from the SHU. Considering the material presented in your readings and the learning module/lecture, what clinical issues would you want to consider prior to providing services? Ethical issues? Security concerns?
