Use of secure detention for juveniles and alternatives to its use by Donnell M Pappenfort( Book )

This monograph is an analysis of the use of residential and non-residential programs as alternatives to secure detention for juveniles awaiting adjudicatory hearings in juvenile courts. The analysis is based on literature from the last decade supplemented by interviews and statistics from site visits to 14 juvenile court jurisdictions with alternative programs. Chapter One describes the decisions by police and other adults that create a group of youth court referrals. The next chapter analyzes the process of juvenile court through which decisions are made about court and detention intake, with the placement of selected youths in secure detention, alternative programs, or their homes. In Chapter Three, the variations in use of secure detention are described; the psychosocial consequences for detained juveniles are discussed as well as the consequences after adjudication at the time of court disposition. Chapter Four contains descriptions of the programs used as alternatives to secure detention in 14 jurisdictions. The final chapter presents conclusions of the study and offers recommendations intended for jurisdictions planning alternative programs. (Author/NRB)
Achievement Place : the teaching-family treatment model in a group-home setting by John L Levitt( Book )

3 editions published between 1981 and 1982 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper summarizes a diverse body of literature on Achievement Place, a community-based program for juveniles in group home settings. The program's Teaching-Family treatment model is described in detail as a base for presenting findings about its ability to change behaviors. Preliminary data from follow-up studies of attempts to extend the treatment method to other studies are also presented. The first section presents a brief overview of Achievement Place and the Teaching-Family model, together with a list of conclusions reached in a prior review. The details of the Teaching-Family model developed at Achievement Place are presented, including the point system, self-government system, and teaching parents. A second section presents some of the findings reported by researchers who have examined the program, its results and costs. The report concludes by raising certain questions future research on Achievement Place might pursue. (JAC)
Secure detention of juveniles and alternatives to its use : phase I summary report by Thomas M Young( Book )

6 editions published between 1977 and 1979 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study shows that thoughtful communities can and have developed viable alternatives to detention for children in trouble--alternatives that are more humane than secure detention and present minimal risk to the community. The study's four program formats (residential and nonresidential) were roughly equal in their ability to keep both alleged delinquents and status offenders trouble free and available to the court. The failure rate ranged from 2.4 to 12.18% across the 14 programs visited. The study focuses on how youth are selected for admission to secure detention or placement in an alternative program in the context of decisions throughout the juvenile justice system process. It describes the four types of programs: public, nonresidential programs based on the Home Detention Model; Attention Homes; programs for runaways; and foster home programs under private auspices. The findings and recommendations should be of immediate practical benefit to juvenile courts and juvenile justice planners who are considering the introduction of an alternative to secure detention.

National Survey of Residential Group Care Facilities for Children and Youth, 1981( )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This survey covers facilities for children and youth who are considered to be dependent and neglected, delinquent, emotionally disturbed, mentally ill, in detention or under supervision (status offenders), and/or in need of temporary shelter or emergency care, or in need of services due to pregnancy or use of an illegal substance. The survey was designed to gather information about programs and services that most types of residential care facilities provide, regardless of function, rather than about those specific to a single type of residential care. Information provided about each facility includes the problems, conditions, and patterns of behavior of their residents, the treatment programs for them, and the extent of their participation in community activities. Questionnaires were sent to the directors of all qualifying facilities. Telephone interviews were conducted with those directors who did not respond to the questionnaire

Attenuation correction in SPECT using emission data by Thomas Michael Young( )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Emission Computed Tomography (ECT) is an important and widely used functional imaging procedure in medical physics. Through the use of photon emissions from a radioactively tagged pharmaceutical, ECT produces an image depicting the relative pharmaceutical concentration as a function of position within the patient. The resulting images contain artifacts due to the use of a mathematical model which erroneously assumes human tissue densities are negligible. To reduce these artifacts the reconstruction process must take tissue density into account. Much of the research in this field has concentrated on obtaining a map of the tissue density using auxiliary transmission sources, and incorporating this map as a priori information. The alternative explored in this project is to exploit the attenuation information in the emission data to estimate a density map. In this project, a mathematical model which allows for non-uniform tissue density is applied to Single Photon ECT data (SPECT). Dual-window scatter subtraction is performed, and constraints are applied based on Bayesian statistics. A maximum-likelihood solution to the resulting inverse problem is approximated numerically using an Algebraic Reconstruction Technique (ART). The results were compared to those of clinical Filtered Back Projection (FBP). Attenuation artifacts were significantly reduced in both the numerical and physical phantoms. Resolution and overall RMS error were also improved. The resulting attenuation correction was superior to the uniform attenuation correction provided by the clinical software
