Stop Crime by 1984, Here's How.
Darrow, Frank M.
This booklet discusses the need for a developmental approach to the prevention of juvenile deliquency and crime in general. It presents an overview of the crime problem, mentions some common viewpoints concerning causal factors, and makes a case for the relationship between early life experiences and incidence of adult criminal behavior. The pamphlet describes research which supports the validity of this relationship. Another section deals with the question of treatment and intervention. The author believes that the interval between the ages of 6 and 10 is an appropriate time for preventative counseling and guidance. He cautions against waiting until after age 10 because chances of effective intervention are significantly decreased. He discusses a program in California in which counseling at the elementary level was used as a means of dealing with the problem of behavior discipline. On the basis of examining this program the author recommends that all elementary schools include counseling for delinquency prevention in their system. (BW)
