OJJDP Teleconference Videotapes, Videotape
On Thursday, January 18, 2007, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention—in conjunction with the American Bar Association's Commission on Youth at Risk, and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Family and Youth Services Bureau—presented the videoconference "Addressing the Needs of Juvenile Status Offenders and Their Families." The broadcast highlighted programs, practices, and policies that have shown promise in intervening with status offenders by reducing further offending, providing support to their families, and steering them toward a positive future.
