Communicating with Youth: The Adolescent Offender and His Counselor.
Dodge, Calvert R.
This study was undertaken to accomplish the following: (1) to begin to define interaction patterns of delinquent youths and their counselors in the rehabilitative camp environment; (2) to discover if interaction patterns in the camp environment differ from patterns of interaction in larger institutions; and (3) to investigate the assumption that these interaction patterns are associated with recidivism rates of youths paroled from Colorado's two youth camps. The chapters in this report correspond with the original chronological development of the study. Chapter I is the Introduction. Chapter II consists of a review of the relevant literature specifically as it pertains to juvenile delinquents and juvenile delinquency. Chapter III describes the methods developed and used in this study. This investigation is considered to be descriptive and required the reconstruction of a test with regard to vocabulary commensurate with the educational reading and comprehension levels of the subjects studied. Chapter IV presents and interprets the data collected. Chapter V summarizes the preceding material and discusses some implications of the study. (Author/CK)
