Training Youth Workers in the Field of Juvenile Delinquency.
Dodge, Calvert R., Ed.
This report focuses on the issue of preparation and training for those who work with delinquent youth. It is the intent of the editor to demonstrate that the issues involved in youth worker training are both significant to him and relate to the core of modern social development. It is pointed out that, in today's world, we are witnessing a dissolution of traditional family structure, a continuing movement toward fragmented urban life with its mode of interpersonal alienation, and the ongoing disenfranchisement of minority group populations. These factors are, among other things, creating and widening what is most commonly called the "Generation Gap." It should be apparent, therefore, that those issues which are most appropriate to the training of youth workers, who deal with adjudicated delinquents, have much broader implications for the areas which involve society's relationship and focus on all youth.
