(p.183) Chapter 8 Programming in the Modern Juvenile Court
Changing Lives
University of Chicago Press

This chapter addresses the current role of programming in the U.S. juvenile-court system. Extensive programming has a central role to play within the juvenile-court system and thus should be an important component in society's responses to the most serious delinquents. The attempt to provide programmatic support to the juvenile courts' high-risk offenders is a critical part of the government's approach to providing services for the young. Any decent custodial setting can accommodate programming for a wide variety of goals such as drug and alcohol prevention, remedial education, anger management, and social skills training. The research on custodial programs has demonstrated that such programs can be effective in reducing recidivism, as well as in providing higher levels of public protection and accountability.
