The purpose of the study was to determine the degree to which the program reduced violent behavior and enhanced social behavior.
The study determined that Criminon learning programs can contribute to decreasing the rate of violence. Further, it determined that Criminon addresses the need for transmitting life capabilities and learning skills that contribute to the development of “normative” behavior and in doing so helped attain the “greatest influence through education and learning.”
