The Serious Juvenile Offender. Proceedings of a National Symposium, September 19 and 20, 1977, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
This publication contains presentations made at the National Symposium on the Serious Juvenile Offender. The meeting was convened to identify key policies and to assess present attitudes and information regarding youth who commit serious crimes--especially violent crimes. The National Juvenile Justice Act stimulated the development of criteria for imposing incarceration, while stressing certainty of punishment for serious offenders. Similarly, the diverse viewpoints expressed in this publication are provided to help policy makers and other concerned citizens develop more appropriate responses to a critical problem. Topics addressed include systems of control, alternative strategies for aftercare, treatment responses, legal responses, prediction, and perspectives of various states on the problem of the serious juvenile offender.
