An Evidence-Based Approach to Reducing Recidivism in Court-Referred Youth
Lancaster, Chloe; Balkin, Richard S.; Garcia, Roberto; Valarezo, Alexandra
Journal of Counseling & Development, v89 n4 p488-492 Fall 2011
The authors obtained recidivism data on a predominantly Latino/a sample of juvenile offenders within a 24-month period following their participation in a community-based psychoeducational counseling program emphasizing life skills development. The treatment group was compared with a sample of youth derived from the same database who had participated in community probationary programs. Youth in the treatment group had statistically significant less recidivism in a 24-month period subsequent to completing the program than did youth in the control group.
