Education of the Young Offender: A Dynamic Approach.
Ross, Ralph H.
The paper describes the program offered by the Shawbridge Youth Centers High School (Montreal, Quebec) for adolescent offenders and focuses on the school's Life Skills and Work Orientation Department (known by the students as the "Co-op"). Overall goals of the school's program include developing educational programs matched to individual needs and facilitating transition of students between institutional life and the community. The Co-op is based on two approaches--reality therapy and life space interviewing. The Co-op program is designed to help students acquire skills to improve their level of autonomy and employability. To illustrate the program, the process, from referral through evaluation, is reviewed. Sample forms are included. (SW)
