Project CREST [Clinical Regional Support Teams]: A University Responds to Juvenile Delinquency. A Conventional Program Summary.
Project CREST (Clinical Regional Support Teams) is an innovative, LEAA-funded action project, using paid and volunteer counselor education students to work as referral agents with juvenile delinquents in several north Florida communities. The program is distinctive in that its assessment, counseling, and consulting services do not replace but rather augment regular Division of Youth Services probation treatment, resulting in ongoing "dual treatment" for CREST clients. This report provides abstracts of presentations on: (1) the need for the CREST project and the challenge the field of juvenile corrections now offers the counseling profession; (2) how the CREST teams of graduate students operate; (3) how the project helps train its staff to be effective with a difficult client population; (4) how team members attempt to function as community change agents as well as personal counselors; (5) what research studies show about the project's effectiveness, together with a discussion of the problems and pitfalls encountered in such research; and (6) funding resources now available to the counseling profession for projects with a delinquent population, plus necessary steps in obtaining these funds. This report includes the names and addresses of program presenters who may be contacted for further information. (Author)
