Overview

Juvenile Corrections

Juvenile Corrections provides a comprehensive overview of juvenile corrections, describing the key forms of juvenile incarceration (from community-based sanctions such as probation to state training schools, which are similar to adult prisons in some jurisdictions), as well as identifying the main challenges facing juvenile corrections, from ensuring that programs are safe (reducing violence and self-harm) and conducive to the rehabilitation of these youths. In addition to merely identifying problems, the text uses examples of interventions that have been demonstrated by research to be effective at reducing delinquency.
