Title: The impact of drama on recidivism in Singapore : a collective case study
Synopsis:

The Theatre Arts Programme (TAP) in Institution B5 of Changi Prison was set up by the Singapore Prison Service (SPS) in February 2011 for male inmates. Drama, percussion, movement and basic technical theatre skills were used to encourage an interest in learning, better written and spoken English and for participants to acquire good work ethics valuable for future employment. The programme not only met its objectives but improved behavior, self motivation and positive attitudes were observed. While these outcomes provided TAP participants with a better outlook on life during their incarceration, these attributes would serve them even better when they are released and have to fit back into family and work life. How would these participants fare two years after their release? This collective case study analyses qualitative and quantitative data collected through a General Self Efficacy Scale (Jerusalem & Schwarzer, 1992) based on a survey and interviews on 5 past TAP participants to see if self motivation and positive attitudes were still the driving factors for them to do well. Results from the study showed that these participants still valued their learning experiences in TAP and their self motivation and positive attitudes have become an intrinsic part of their daily lives.
