The crowd was pushed back by police, the buses pulled up and the blacks left for home, flocks were thrown at the buses as they left, injuring two riders.

Conn. < AP» — Connecticut corrections officials say they are pleased with the success thus far of a controversial program that uses electric snoek treatment and psychological conditioning on men serving terms for molesting children. Roger Wolfe, administrator of the program, says that in the last 18 months, ll men who have undergone the treatment have been released from the state prison here. None have been rearrested for sexual of-lenses, he says And while Wolfe says it is “inevitable” that one of those involved will be rearrested, he hopes the program will be 70 to 80 percent successful. Accepted Patterns The treatment involves channeling the behavior of the convicts into socially accepted patterns. They undergo a three-stage treatment aimed at making them desire sex with women rather than children. Civil libertarians critical of the program say inmates participate because they believe it will enhance their chances of parole And the U S. Bureau of Prisons has said it is discontinuing its behavior modification program. State Correction Commissioner John Manson, however, says he is prepared to go to court to keep the Connecticut program and calls the federal decision “gutless.” Munson says the alternative is to keep convicted child molesters locked up] for longer periods since parole boards are reluctant to grant early parole to sex offenders. Wolfe says that the officials running the program often are skeptical about tie sincerity of those wishing to enter But he says the motivation level of most inmates is high because “it s not nice to he a child molester. If you're a junkie you can find ail sorts of peer support. . . If you're a bank robber, you're admired ” Aversion Therapy The program uses just that motivation to change the inmate during the behavior modification program. It starts with aversion iherapy, which uses the individual's phobia and couples it with an incompatible picture that makes that phobia repulsive to him. During shock therapy, the inmate sees slides of nude children and women. He receives an electric shock to the groin area when he sees a slide of a child. No shock is associated with the pictures of women With the modester's preference for children eliminated, social conditioning begins by transferring the inmate's sexual desires to “normal channels.” The inmate fantasizes normal sexual contact, and rewards himself with thoughts of something he finds pleasant, such as his boss giving him a raise. Wolfe says most child molesters are passive and afraid to deal with adults — “They don't usually feel very good about themselves when the whole world says, Hey. man. that's the lowest you can go." ” He says that means there is little chance of transferring from one sexual deviance to another, such as rape. “The popular consensus of a child molester is a guy who leaps out of bushes and jumps on some poor unsuspecting child.” he said “But in reality, maybe 85 percent engage in seduction, If they demonstrated this behavior to an adult, it would be considered perfectly normal.’ &hr (f etlur lUpiiU EOObH»h»<l in IHI bv Th* Got*tt* Co on a oubHincd doily and Sunday a* VOD Third av* VE.
