Intervening with Convicted Serious Juvenile Offenders.
Juveniles who commit such serious offenses as nonnegligent homicide, rape, assault, and robbery constitute an increasing concern for the criminal justice system. Persons who commit these offenses force a balancing of conflicting demands for offender rehabilitation and community protection. This report, the result of a comprehensive effort conducted for the National Institute of Juvenile Justice and Delinquent Prevention, aims to: (1) identify behavior-changing treatments currently in use with serious juvenile offenders and (2) determine what is known about their effectiveness. The author presents the program characteristics that appear to be successful, regardless of the specific treatment modalities applied, and suggests research strategies for improving the knowledge base for future program decisions.
