The Hospitalized Juvenile Offender: A Behavioral/Educational Approach.
Burnett, Darrell J.; Curtis, Susann K.
Research points to two major deficits in the juvenile offender: behavioral (minimal social adaptive skills) and educational (learning disabilities). A private hospitalization treatment program for adolescents is described which combines a behavioral and educational approach to the juvenile offender. A case study illustrates how a behavioral/educational program in a private setting can interact with the juvenile justice system offering quantitative data for diagnosis, and treatment and recommendations for final court disposition.
