Alternative Responses to the Problems of Delinquent Behavior Patterns of Youth.
Brown, Barbara Horovitz; And Others
The document reports the suggestions offered by workshop participants regarding alternative responses to the problems of delinquent behavior patterns in youth. Recommendations offered include the following: priority must be given to services to children in need, with the goal of preventing entrance into the traditional justice system; programs should be encouraged with priority going to high risk locales where parents could attend parent education seminars; and helping professionals should be specifically trained for intensive work with troubled families and for involvement with resistant adolescents. Several models (including the Job Prep model of Hartford, Connecticut; the National Youth Project Using Minibikes, which offers community based services; and the Youth Diversionary Program of the Rhode Island Opportunities Industrialization Center) are considered.
