Overview

Treating Chronic Juvenile Offenders presents several promising methods for treating chronic juvenile offenders proven to be effective in reducing juvenile crime. The book features the Oregon Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care Program, which has emerged as an intervention model for chronic juvenile offenders who are already placed out of the home, typically incarcerated in residential treatment facilities. The author presents and discusses factors that are known to influence the onset and escalation of antisocial behavior along with their implications for the design and implementation of community-based programs. The author also describes variations of the Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care Program for specific populations such as girls and young children with behavioral disorders. Throughout the book, the author draws on the rich history of research on the development and treatment of antisocial behavior in children and adolescents that has paved the way for the articulation of intervention models aimed at working with some of societies most troublesome youngsters.
