Summary (original language)

The article is meant to diagnose the readaptational potential of prisoners covered by the Preparation for Freedom Program, six months prior to their release, in accordance with Article 166 of the Criminal Enforcement Code, compared to prisoners not leaving the prison. The readaptational potential of prisoners consists of the following factors: readiness to take legal work, psychophysical condition and self-assessment, diagnosed using three psychometrically correct and standardized questionnaires. The research was conducted on four groups of prisoners in three prisons in Poland, made up of three criterial and one control group. In total, 210 prisoners were examined. The research assumptions were verified using the Test of Independence χ2.
