A Review of Accumulated Research in the California Youth Authority.
Griffiths, Keith S., Ed.; Ferdun, Gareth S., Ed.
Since 1958, the California Youth Authority has undertaken a wide diversity of research projects which span the range of activities in which the department is involved. These include program evaluation and development, measurement and classification, followup studies, and experimentally designed demonstration projects. Studies have been directed at delinquency prevention and diversion, probation, community treatment, short-term programs, forestry camps, narcotic treatment, education, training, and parole. This publication attempts to bring together the findings of these studies and to summarize the research knowledge acquired by the California Youth Authority over the past 16 years, in an attempt to ascertain what has been learned, and what is known as a result of research studies. The authors warn that there are undoubtedly significant omissions of pertinent studies and findings, and, therefore, the review should be regarded as tentative and preliminary. (Author/PC)
