All in the Family? The use of Family Intervention Programs and Methods in Juvenile Justice

24 October 2012

The Institute of Criminology is pleased to announce the first seminar in the 2012-2013 Juvenile Justice seminar series, which will explore models of family intervention and their effectiveness in reducing juvenile offending behavior. In exploring the role of family intervention, the seminar will bring together key government, non-government organisation and academic perspectives. Critical attention increasingly is being paid to this area of juvenile justice practice; some jurisdictions are enthusiastic about the uptake of such programs, while others are more cautious. In light of this, it is timely that this seminar asks: how effective are family intervention programs and methods? Do they assist young people from deepening contact with the criminal justice system and prevent offending behaviour? Simply put, can and do they work?
