The study sample was 135 convicted adolescent prisoners whose ages ranged from 18-21 with a mean of 19.5 randomly selected from Agodi Prison, Ibadan, Oyo State and Ilesa Prison, Osun State. The subjects were randomly assigned to the two intervention conditions and control group. The treatment lasted for six weeks of twelve sessions. A 3 x 3 experimental design was adopted. The validated instruments namely: the Creativity Motivation Scale in lbadan Creativity Assessment Scale (ICAS) and Self Concept Scale in the Adolescent Personal Data Inventory (APDI) were used. The results indicated that subjects exposed to treatments performed significantly better than the control group on measure of creativity motivation of the subjects. On differential effectiveness basis, however, APCAW technique took the lead.
