Transcendental Meditation® and Offender Rehabilitation
Transcendental Meditation and Offender Rehabilitation: A New Approach to Crime Prevention   Introduction   In September 2003, the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation devoted all four issues of its annual publication to a special volume entitled “Transcendental Meditation in Criminal Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention” (J Offender Rehab 36 (1-4), 2003).   This special volume presents a wide range of research showing that the practice of Transcendental Meditation can significantly reduce crime, criminal aggression, violence, recidivism, terrorism, and even international conflict, while simultaneously developing higher levels of psychological functioning—higher states of consciousness—in TM practitioners (see article titles and abstracts below).   The Journal of Offender Rehabilitation is one of the nation’s leading academic journals for research on rehabilitation programs and their impact on prisoners and substance abusers. This special volume was conceived by Dr. Charles Alexander, guest editor and late Institute Senior Fellow and Chair of the Psychology Department at Maharishi University of Management.   Dr. Alexander’s groundbreaking doctoral work at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Walpole, Mass., served as the foundation for the project.   -- See
