OJJDP Releases Fall 2016 Issue of Journal of Juvenile Justice

OJJDP has released the fall 2016 issue of the online "Journal of Juvenile Justice." This issue features articles on the variables that are associated with the juvenile justice system and recidivism for youth, reasons for the 20 percent turnover rate among correctional officers in juvenile facilities, and research into trauma and adversity found among justice-involved youth. Topics also include research and testing of disproportionate minority contact prevention, decisionmaking, and treatment services; a comparison of masculine beliefs that incarcerated sex abusers and juveniles incarcerated for other offenses hold; and a comparison of the mental and behavioral health profiles of male and female adolescents placed in intensive, home-based treatment.
