Six Conferences: A Composite View of Conferencing in Programs for Troubled Youth.

By combining footage of actual Real Justice conferences for offenses ranging from truancy and leaving school grounds to theft and bringing a knife onto a school bus, this video provides a realistic view of conferencing. Some conferences are emotional, others are not. Some conferences produce satisfying outcomes and occasionally one falls apart. But even an “unsuccessful” conference, as the follow-up interviews show, can produce meaningful outcomes. All six conferences were videotaped, with the permission of participants, at group homes or schools operated by the Community Service Foundation in southeastern Pennsylvania.
