Program Description
Juvenile delinquency has and will continue to be a major societal concern. The efforts to understand the causes of delinquency and measures to prevent it have been interdisciplinary in nature with the law enforcement agents, sociologist, politicians and psychologists all exploring this issue from different perspectives (Schmalleger, 2009). Additionally, experts on delinquency suggest demographical, personal, economic and social factors may all be relevant in understanding this issue (Siegel & Welsh, 2012). This training will explore these factors, as well as, relevant theories that may aid in understanding the causes and possible methods of prevention including programs like Thinking for a Change and Corrective Thinking Training.
