Juvenile Justice and Juvenile Delinquency: Case Studies Workbook

 
9781498740357: Juvenile Justice and Juvenile Delinquency: Case Studies Workbook

Designed as supplemental material for juvenile delinquency and juvenile justice courses, Juvenile Justice and Juvenile Delinquency: Case Studies Workbook fills a void in current textbooks. This workbook provides a hands-on experience that helps students understand the kinds of court hearings that take place in juvenile and family courts. It presents information about actual cases and prompts students to make decisions and design court orders for typical juvenile court cases.

The case scenarios range from cases at the juvenile court intake level all the way to cases in which students must decide whether a young person should be waived into the criminal system to be tried as an adult.

The book allows students to compare their choices with those of the actual judge or referee, and also gives information as to the outcome for the young person after the court’s decision. This information helps students gauge the soundness of their own decisions based on the impacts of the actual decision reached by the judge or referee. Each chapter also contains statistics, facts, court decisions, and information about policies that enable a better understanding of the juvenile justice system.

This workbook provides a unique opportunity for students to experience what it is like to face decisions in the juvenile court system. By engaging with the information and cases laid out in a more hands-on manner than offered in typical related textbooks, students will gain a greater appreciation for the decisions juvenile court judges and referees have to make on a daily basis.

He developed a group training program for parents of delinquents, which won a national award. Since 2000, he has been an adjunct instructor in the Criminal Justice Department at Wayne State University in Detroit. Since September 2013, he has been a lecturer in criminal justice at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan. He teaches juvenile justice classes at both universities.
