The Criminon Honduras Study

The Honduras study was aimed at “the impact of the Criminon program intervention—a series of courses including, importantly, a life-skill course entitled, ‘The Way to Happiness’—on a group of incarcerated females in Honduras at the Women’s Center of Social Adaptation (CEFAS is its Spanish acronym ).” The study is qualitative and uses an ethnographic methodology with in-depth focus groups and interviews.

Criminon’s methodology was studied over several months and the findings indicate that the rehabilitation process was successful through a dynamic balance between the following elements:

  1. obtaining new data about the best ways to coexist with other human beings
  2. reflecting on their lives in the light of those data, and
  3. trying and adopting new behaviors
