Vocational Rehabilitation in Juvenile Delinquency: A Planning Grant to Determine the Role of Vocational Rehabilitation in Juvenile Delinquency. Final Report. Research and Demonstration Project (July 1, 1963--June 30, 1964).
Oklahoma State Board for Vocational Education, Stillwater. Rehabilitation Service Div.
This project developed from a need for knowledge and information concerning a problem of growing concern to most American communities and particularly those comprising metropolitan areas. Increasing evidence of disregard for law and order on the part of individuals of all ages, and especially teen-age children, points up the need for intelligent action based on reliable information. Therefore, the objective of this project was to develop a plan whereby the services and resources of various agencies might be coordinated to more effectively educate and rehabilitate juvenile delinquents. Implications of the data presented in the study are clear in that they call for a coordinated attack on the problem to prevent juvenile delinquency, to deal intelligently with the young offender, and to provide greater continuity to his treatment. Major sections of this study include: (1) The Scope and Extent of Juvenile Delinquency in Tulsa and Oklahoma Counties, (2) Available Resources, (3) The Extent of Physical or Psychological Handicaps Manifested in Juvenile Delinquents, and (4) A Proposed Program to Alleviate Juvenile Delinquency.
