Overview

Juvenile offending and anti-social behavior are enormous societal concerns. This broad-reaching volume summarizes the current evidence on prevention, diversion, causes, and rates of delinquency, as well as assessment of risk and intervention needs. A distinguished cast of contributors from law, psychology, and psychiatry describe what we know about interventions in school, community, and residential contexts, focusing particularly on interventions that are risk reducing and cost effective. Equally important, each chapter comments on what is not well supported through research, distinguishing aspects of current practice that are likely to be effective from those that are not and mapping new directions for research, policy, and practice. Finally, the volume provides a description of a model curriculum for training legal and mental health professionals on conducting relevant assessments of adolescents for the courts. Effectively bridging research and practice, this will be an important resource for legal and mental health professionals involved in the juvenile justice system, policy makers seeking humane but effective interventions in the context of society's need for safety, and those involved in teaching about and training in juvenile delinquency.

Great Information! As a non-profit organization, Community Alliance: Resource & Diversion Services,(who provides the Shoplifting Prevention and Rehabilitation Course to juvenile delinquents), we highly recommend this book! This book definitely capitalizes on the effectiveness of partnering with other entities on the local, state, and federal level. By forming partnerships, we are able to direct youths and/or juvenile delinquents to the agency/agencies who best handle the situation. This enables agencies who do not specialize in offense-specific programs to focus on enhancing their existing program(s) or spend more time in areas to provide ongoing rehabilitation and follow-ups. Recidivism rates can be accurately established and provided for county or statewide statistics. This book is an excellent resource that regales your interests and succors in attaining your goal(s). This book is well-written and expounds on all aspects surrounding Juvenile Offending. The risk, protective, and prevention factors are pertinent in making assessments for directive treatemnt. Great education material for those working with juveniles to deter or rehabilitate.
