Overview

Created as an alternative to the punishment-oriented criminal justice system, the juvenile court is a unique American invention that has been replicated around the world. But to say that this system is without significant flaws would be misleading. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the juvenile justice system is a vital step towards improving counseling and rehabilitation programs.

 

Preventing and Reducing Juvenile Delinquency: A Comprehensive Framework presents the latest research and most effective programs for understanding, preventing, and controlling juvenile delinquency. Renowned specialist in the field James C. Howell examines key myths about juvenile violence and the ability of the juvenile justice system to handle modern-day juvenile delinquents. Reviewing the history of current juvenile justice system policies and practices, Howell provides a comprehensive framework for analyzing and responding to juvenile crime.

 

Geared toward preparing students for a career in juvenile justice or social services, this accessible volume includes

  • Chapter introductions and summaries that link research studies to intervention programs
  • Boxed studies, data sources, key definitions, and concepts
  • Extensive real-world case studies and illustrations
  • Comprehensive overview of state-of-the-art research and programs
  • Developmental theories of juvenile delinquency
  • Advanced juvenile justice system management tools
  • Effective prevention and rehabilitation programs

 

Preventing and Reducing JuvenileDelinquency explores the world of chronic, violent juvenile offenders and gang involvement. Evaluating the current "moral panic" over juvenile delinquency, the author offers an effective program delivery system that empowers individual practitioners and communities.

 

Intended as a supplementary text for undergraduate and graduate courses in juvenile delinquency, juvenile justice, and violent offender intervention courses, Preventing and Reducing Juvenile Delinquency is also essential reading for juvenile justice and social services research and development specialists.

Editorial Reviews

Youth Justice
"In this book Howell proposes a proactive approach to incorporate both preventative interventions and a series of graduated sanctions. . . . The book provides a fascinating insight into the American youth justice system which is both alien (juvenile executions) and familiar to the reader (prison overcrowding) and will be useful for anyone interested in the debates and solutions proposed by a jurisdiction which often influences policy makers. "

(Buddy) Howell, Ph.D., worked at the federal Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) in the U.S. Department of Justice for 21 years, mostly as Director of Research and Program Development.
