Description
 
Ken Schatz (ed); Robert Pence (fr). Findings from a year-long investigation into the scope of mental health concerns & services in the juvenile justice system. Exposes myriad systematic shortcomings & a lack of effective, integrated mental health assessment & treatment services. Explains why parents may be forced to surrender their children to the juvenile court because they cannot receive assistance with mental health problems. Reveals how poverty, gender, race, gender & sexual orientation may block young offenders from receiving services. Shows how treatment methods that focus on rebuilding a childís family structure while ensuring that he or she receives intensive therapy have reduced recidivism by as much as 80%.
