Addressing the Needs of Multi-System Youth: Strengthening the Connection between Child Welfare and Juvenile Justice
Denise Herz (au)
Youth known to both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems -- commonly referred to as crossover or dually-involved youth -- tend to go undetected, following a stealth-like pathway between these two systems. As a group of children and youth who suffer from the effects of childhood trauma, they are often underserved as they move from one system to another, experiencing the negative consequences of infrequent cross system coordination related to case planning and the delivery of needed services. Researchers have been working to better understand the trajectory many crossover youth follow between systems and into adulthood. Much more is now known about their characteristics as a population and the factors associated with their crossing over. This paper provides a framework for jurisdictions to utilize in their efforts to better serve crossover youth. The aim is to help develop a better understanding of how to prevent youth from crossing over between systems and ensure that all youth who are served by both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems experience them in a manner that provides for their safety, well being and permanence, while also ensuring public safety.
