This will not be a theoretical talk about â€œwhat worksâ€ in youth justice. It will be a talk about three particular â€œinterventionsâ€ that operate in the Childrenâ€™s Court of Victoria. Two of them â€“ ROPES and The Childrenâ€™s Koori Court are unique to Victoria. Both are currently being evaluated.I The third program, Group Conferencing, will be well known to some of you. It has been evaluated and I will report on aspects of that. I will identify why I believe these three programs are of benefit to participants and also provide broader
community benefits. (excerpt)
