“Creating a therapeutic program within a juvenile justice custodial setting.”

Ciko, Ana-Marija
June 4, 2015

Source: (1997) Paper presented at the Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice – Toward 2000 and Beyond conference. Adelaide, South Australia, 26-27 June. Canberra: Australian Institute of Criminology.

In this paper Ciko outlines key aspects of developing a therapeutic program with a custodial setting for juveniles. This begins with her discussion of significant stages in program development: determining the boundaries and limits of the program; identifying the features of the program within the custodial center; and moving in the community to provide a seamless service. She illustrates these ideas by describing a Young Women in Custody Program at a particular juvenile justice center.
