The random sampling technique was used to select 155 male prisoners from an estimated population of 347 as at the time of data collection. Data collected was analysed using descriptive statistics and the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) version 16. The findings in relation to the stated hypotheses revealed that, a significant positive correlation exists between self-esteem, needs satisfaction and psychological well-being.
