The Future of Criminology

This chapter deals with developmental prevention with a special focus on the family domain. It argues that families matter and by putting families first we can go a long way toward improving the effectiveness of delinquency prevention in the years to come. The importance of family-based prevention is evident not just in the early childhood years but also for system-involved youth.
