OJJDP Juvenile Justice Journal, Journal, 32 page(s)
Greenbaum, S., Rhoden, E., White, P. J.
Presents articles that describe OJJDP's Program of Research on the Causes and Correlates of Juvenile Delinquency, outline OJJDP's Disproportionate Minority Confinement Program, and explore issues related to the court-ordered placement of children. Longitudinal studies can play a key role in research that leads to effective solutions to juvenile justice problems. In "Drugs, Delinquency, and Other Data," Stuart Greenbaum describes the massive Causes and Correlates study, which followed 4,000 juveniles for 5 years, and highlights some of its significant findings. The aptly titled "Disproportionate Minority Representation: First Steps to a Solution," by Eugene Rhoden, provides an overview of OJJDP's pilot program. Finally, "Courting Disaster: Permanency Planning for Children," by Patricia White, examines the challenge facing juvenile and family courts when they must order the placement of children in cases of purported abuse or neglect.
