For undergraduate and graduate courses in Juvenile Delinquency. 

Taking a psychological orientation, this text examines the causes, prevention, and intervention of juvenile offending from a contemporary developmental perspective. It looks at how the juvenile offender is influenced by multiple systems within the social environment, issues of resilience and human strength, and strategies for prevention, intervention and treatment. Multicultural perspectives are considered throughout and this edition features more on developmental research, juvenile gangs, and child and adolescent psychopathy.
