The Effect of Training/Supervision of Nonprofessional Interventions with Delinquents.
Kantrowitz, Ricki E.; And Others
The use of undergraduates (N=57) working on a one-to-one basis with delinquent youths as the change agents in a nonprofessional program which systematically varied training/supervision/intervention components was investigated. Students and delinquents (N=73) were randomly assigned to one of four experimental training/supervision conditions or to a control group. Process interviews were conducted to determine what transpired in the 18-week intervention. The impact of the training/supervision segment on the actual intervention and the relationship between the intervention activities and successful youth outcome, based on official recidivism and school performance data, were determined. Results indicated that understanding how training/supervision is applied to the intervention situation by the nonprofessional, and how separate components differentially affect outcome, is important in determining the overall effect of any intervention.
