The sessions took: Figure 3. Evaluation by participants, about the duration of sessions, after the series Differences in evaluations per professional discipline of prison staff We noticed major and significant differences in the evaluations depending on the professional disciplines of participating prison staff. We present notable outcomes based on evaluations after the series, followed by single MCD sessions and corresponding qualitative outcomes. Each group per professional discipline (Appendix 1) includes multiple teams from different locations. We provide the average evaluative scores from their entire discipline group (e.g., Figure 4). The information is not reducible to specific teams. The evaluation of the series and the single MCD sessions show the following pattern; ‘case managers of the re-integration services’ (CR) and frequently ‘security guards’ (SG) were less optimistic in their evaluation scores compared to other disciplines. Instead, ‘health care professionals’ (HP), ‘middle management’ (MM), ‘management teams’ (MT), and sometimes additionally ‘correctional officers for repeated offenders’ (OR) showed significantly higher evaluation scores (p < 0.05). 3
