Intensive aftercare for high-risk juveniles : an assessment by David M Altschuler( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Crowded juvenile correctional centers, escalating costs of confinement, and high rates of recidivism have renewed interest in bringing innovative ideas to juvenile aftercare philosophy, practice, and programming. This program summary details an Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention initiative designed to assist public and private corrections agencies in developing and implementing effective aftercare approaches for chronic juvenile offenders who initially require secure confinement. This manual tries to provide the reader with a clear sense of how program elements and components are structured and how they function. Underlying principles offer a sufficient, sound, and understandable "blueprint" from which program design can proceed. The Intensive Aftercare Program (IAP) was designed to address: (1) identified, need-related risk factors associated with reoffending juveniles; (2) the set of ancillary program services that focus on other needs and problems of high-risk juvenile parolees; and (3) surveillance and monitoring objectives. With it, the juvenile justice system can begin to confront multifaceted circumstances part of the dynamics of recidivism. The theory-driven, empirically based IAP model is designed to: provide public protection; operate with limited resources; and be tailored to different jurisdictions that are trying to confront, hold accountable, and treat their own high risk parolees.

Youth gangs in Indian country by Aline K Major( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1995, the National Youth Gang Center (NYGC) has surveyed law enforcement agencies across the nation about youth gang activity. Because tribal police departments were not included in earlier surveys, however, youth gang activities in Indian country have been largely absent from survey findings. This Bulletin describes the nature and makeup of youth gangs in Indian country. The findings presented are the result of a 2001 NYGC survey-- tailored specifically for Indian communities-- that asked federally recognized Indian communities to describe their experiences with youth gang activity. Researchers found that youth gangs in Indian country did not differ greatly from youth gangs in comparably sized communities. Indian country youth gangs, however, were noticeably different from youth gangs as depicted through national statistics. The study also included comparisons with findings from a previous study of youth gang activity in the Navajo Nation. Drawing on these research findings, the Bulletin proposes prevention, intervention, and suppression strategies. These proposals are derived from effective programs in non-Indian country settings. Although such programs may require modification to better serve tribal communities, they provide Indian country leaders with proven methods to address emerging youth gang issues.

Reintegration, Supervised Release, and Intensive Aftercare. Juvenile Justice Bulletin by David M Altschuler( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interest in the issue of aftercare for juvenile offenders continues to grow. Jurisdictions seek new ways to reintegrate youth being released from confinement back into their communities, while also ensuring for public safety. Juvenile justice policymakers and professionals are experimenting with aftercare and other reintegration models. After long-term, multistage research and development initiatives to design an intensive model, the Intensive Aftercare Program Model (iap) was created. This publication describes the intensive juvenile aftercare model and compares it with other approaches. It offers an analysis of other programs with the goal of helping to determine what does and does not work in reintegrating juvenile offenders into their communities. The study suggests that some combination of treatment methods, with or without surveillance in the community, is effective in reducing the recidivism of juveniles. (Contains 71 references.) (Jdm)

The river of light : an oratorio for soloists, chorus, & orchestra by Troy Armstrong( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The River of Light was commissioned by the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection orchestra and chorus in Leawood, KS in dedication of a 300 square foot stained glass window that is to be installed in their new sanctuary in 2017. The window, though conceived and built as one cohesive piece of art, is divided into three sections. Part I of "The River of Light" pertains to the images in the left third of the window. These scenes portray the events of creation, the Garden of Eden, and famous historical events and figures from the Old Testament. Part II, the middle of the window, alternates conversations between Jesus and various people from the New Testament with settings of three hymns dealing with the crucifixion that are near and dear to the church that commissioned the work. Part III, the right third of the window, utilizes quotations from figures important to the history of the Christian church that are depicted in the work of art. Flowing through all three sections is a river in the shape of the last Greek letter Omega. This river binds the three sections of the window together as does the hymn, "Shall We Gather at the River", which flows through various musical numbers throughout the entire work
