Killinger, George G.; And Others
The 12 papers in this collection are all concerned with various aspects of delinquency prevention, counseling, correction, and rehabilitation. Some of them had been presented at conferences, some pulled from other works. The first paper states that the pupil personnel worker should be the most important diagnostician and agent for change because he is there at the initial or pre-truancy stages of deviant behavior. The second argues for administrative changes to provide multiple social and community services in the ghettos on a round-the-clock basis, instead of extending such non-police roles to the police department. Other papers deal with counseling the public offender before, during, and after institutionalization. Two papers focus specifically on the narcotics problem. All of the authors write from a sociological background, some also from experience in criminology and police work. (MF)
