Description : Several million reported and unreported delinquent acts take place each year. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, juvenile delinquency, acting-out and oppositional behavior, illegal drugs, guns, and youth violence are pervasive throughout American society. Juvenile Justice Sourcebook is the first comprehensive volume devoted exclusively to the biopsychosocial assessment, police and juvenile court processing, and institutional and community-based treatment and rehabilitation of juvenile offenders. The overriding objective of this sourcebook is to trace the tremendous progress achieved toward resolving juvenile justice issues, dilemmas, and controversies, while providing futuristic visions for the juvenile justice field. Each chapter, authored by preeminent expert practitioners and researchers, explores topics ranging from innovative counseling and multisystemic programs, to restorative justice, to rehabilitation programs such as aggression replacement training, wilderness programs, family treatment, substance abuse treatment, restitution, and aftercare. This volume, grounded in history and exhaustive research, presents the latest evidence-based policies, programs, and innovative treatment alternatives. Examining the entire juvenile justice system, including juvenile law, policies, practices, and research, the Juvenile Justice Sourcebook will be invaluable to all juvenile justice practitioners, policy analysts, researchers, and students.

Description : This three-volume set of original readings is designed to reveal how and why children and young people have been repeatedly the subject of adult concern, censure and intervention. It conceptualises notions of 'childhood', 'youth' and 'adolescence' whilst also tracing the complex history of adult intervention and juvenile justice. This collection is particularly timely not only because of persistent concerns over 'out of control' youth but also because of an apparent hardening of adult reactions in many jurisdictions.

Description : There is an existing gap currently in the academic discourse pertaining to the treatment of juveniles before, during and after their conflict with the law. This book attempts to identify this lacuna in the Indian juvenile justice system and study its impact on our children. It remedies this crucial gap by juxtaposing 'what is' with 'what ought to be' by analysing the results of a study conducted in observation homes and special homes in the National Capital Territory of Delhi, Haryana and Punjab. The data was studied on parameters which reflect upon all aspects of the life and experiences of juveniles before their conflict with the law, inside the homes as well as their post-release prospects. This data was then tested vis-à-vis the requirements of the standard of living, reformation, rehabilitation and reintegration mandated under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2000 as well as the Juvenile Justice Act, 2015. Presenting a comprehensive account, the book further details the amendments in the juvenile justice laws after the Nirbhaya case and offers a critique to it on the grounds of both descriptive realities as well as the current normative understanding of juvenile justice.
