Altering the Trajectory to Delinquency.
Brown, Waln K.
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Problems, v3 n4 p18-19 Win 1995
A former client of the juvenile justice system argues that neither punitive attack nor passive inaction will cause delinquency to go away. Research suggests the use of early delinquency as an opportunity to alter the trajectory of a life headed toward crime. Rather than focusing on recidivism, researchers should focus on successful rehabilitation. (JPS)
