The Implications of Science for Juvenile Justice
This chapter argues that the empirical facts about juvenile offending and intervention programs described in Chapter 2 most directly bolster the individual prevention vision of juvenile justice while providing only a modicum of support for the rehabilitation and retribution visions. It first shows why the rehabilitation model is flawed. It then does the same for the retribution models, focusing primarily on the diminished retribution variant, which has gained considerable support among policy makers. Finally, the chapter presents a positive case for the individual prevention model, from both theoretical and pragmatic perspectives.
