Details: Product Description Juvenile Delinquency: Pathways and Prevention explores the pivotal roles that family, trauma, mental health, and schools have on juvenile delinquency, while exploring opportunities for prevention and intervention. Authors Christopher A. Mallett and Miyuki Fukushima Tedor draw from years of experience working with juvenile offenders to shed light on the nature of delinquency and the diverse pathways to juvenile delinquency, while offering evidence-based techniques for preventing and rehabilitating youthful offenders. Clear explanations of the concepts and thought-provoking case studies move students beyond memorization―encouraging them to think critically about juvenile delinquency and make recommendations for better practices and policies. Review "This text book is an excellent tool that explores issues impacting juvenile delinquency, theories, system response, community interventions and effective programs to help reduce delinquency." -- Robbin Day Brooks, MSW, CPP "This is a new fresh text that applies a different approach and direction. It takes specific issues in juvenile justice and delinquency and puts much more time and effort into addressing these specific trends and issues." -- Dr. Dorinda L. Dowis "The perfect text for any instructor teaching juvenile delinquency. It is comprehensive and tackles contemporary issues rarely addressed in other juvenile delinquency textbooks." -- Michael Pittaro, PhD "I would describe [Juvenile Delinquency] as a very relevant text that allows students to see how reactive decisions of the past with regard to juveniles have very current implications today. It is also easy to comprehend and has a variety of examples that make the content more "real"." -- Shelley Grant "This text examines the nature of delinquency, the causes and influences, and what can be done about delinquent behavior. It provides coverage of theory, the latest research, and evidence-based policy." -- Karin Tusinski Miofsky, Ph.D. "This text is well written and covers a great deal of important information. I strongly recommend this text for uses in classes that are taken by school resource officers and students interested in pursuing a career in Child and Family services…portions of this text would also be beneficial to teachers and administrators in public school systems. I would use this textbook in my Juvenile Delinquency class". -- Melissa Harrell About the Author Christopher A.
