Prevention, Punishment, and Rehabilitation. Treatment of Delinquency Series, Chapter 10.
Sabatino, David A.
The tenth part of a 10-part series, this report was compiled by the Educational Development Center at Wilkes College. The series deals with various aspects of the treatment of delinquents and is intended as a summary of research findings in each of the areas treated. Each report was prepared by a scholar-practitioner and is presented in a way that will be of value to professionals who deal both directly and indirectly with the treatment of delinquent youth. The report is, in fact, one manuscript of 627 pages; however, to make it more easily used, it is published in 10 separate parts. A detailed table of contents for the entire series is presented at the end of each part. This part discusses the three concepts of prevention, punishment and rehabilitation. Prevention is considered in the context of school, community and summer programs, and a number of models are described. The problem of the "self-fulfilling prophecy" often encountered by advocates of early identification is avoided by advocating programs designed to instruct all youth in social values, not just current or potential offenders.
