OJJDP Journal of Juvenile Justice logo

The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention has released the fall 2013 issue of the online "Journal of Juvenile Justice."

This issue features articles that focus on early diversion and assessment to screen youth out of the juvenile justice system, the lack of research on teen courts and recidivism, the effectiveness of intervention programs and mental health courts for delinquents with mental health issues, and recidivism and delinquency risk factors for male and female offenders. Other articles describe a 1-day police–youth team-building program, the impact of Internet-based mindfulness meditation/guided relaxation on incarcerated youth's self-regulation, and a critique of place-based "hot spots" policing in preventing delinquency.
