The psychologist is an expert in prisoner psychology and behavior. He is an essential administrator as he reveals the needs of all your prisoners (and staff members, given that staff needs have been enabled).
This is a necessity as this information can potentially help to prevent violent outbreaks, riots or in the case of staff members: a strike. These consequences are all a possibility if needs are not being met.
A psychologist is able to teach three different Reform Programs:
- Behavioral Therapy serves to quell some of your prison's most violent inhabitants.
- Alcoholics Group Therapy sessions serves to treat prisoners with alcohol addictions. It will never completely remove the addiction, but will definitely satiate it.
- Three Strikes Training prepares prisoners for the Three Strikes Program. Both of these will provide Customer Service experiance, required for working in the Restaurant and Bakery.
As aforementioned, you can hire multiple psychologists in order to schedule simultaneous sessions of these programs.
