In 2011, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), in collaboration with the Campaign for Youth Justice and the Education Development Center, convened four listening sessions with families and youth who had experiences with the juvenile justice system at the local and state levels. The discussions focused on four areas: the expectations and the reality of families' first encounters with the juvenile justice system; whether the youthäó»s needs were met during the period of confinement; how the family was treated and served while their child was confined; and the availability of aftercare services. This report presents a summary of the participantsäó» experiences and their recommendations for reform. Many parents and guardians shared that their children exhibited early warning signs, such as truancy, a drop in grades, and evidence of mental health problems before their first detention and recommended that these warning signs serve as critical prevention and/or intervention points for youth. Other themes included the need for information regarding legal rights and representation, visitation, allowable medical supplies or treatments, and opportunities for continued education; and the importance of services which help decrease the likelihood of recidivism. This is a print on demand report.
