Examines various treatments, services, and intervention programs designed to mitigate the disruptive behavior of child delinquents (offenders younger than age 13). Drawing on research conducted by OJJDPs Study Group on Very Young Offenders, the Bulletin explores the services available to children and their families and the efficacy and cost effectiveness of particular interventions. The Bulletin also discusses juvenile justice system programs and strategies for very young offenders, outlines a model for comprehensive interventions, and evaluates the Canadian approach to child delinquency.
