Summary

For courses in juvenile justice.

An in¿-depth introduction to juvenile justice

The Juvenile Justice System: Delinquency, Processing, and the Law is a comprehensive study of the juvenile justice system that examines how youth offenders are defined and classified. It takes a critical eye to the stages of juvenile processing, current and historical responses to juvenile justice, and how research has influenced policy. Examples of comparative juvenile justice raise the importance of providing opportunities for reform and treatment. The 9th edition highlights evidence-based programs effective in preventing delinquency and treating youthful offenders. It assesses the Sanctuary Model® and trauma-informed care as two new approaches to working with youth.

The Juvenile Justice System
, 9th edition
, is also available via Revel™, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. Learn more.
