Addressing sexual violence in prisons : a national snapshot of approaches and highlights of innovative strategies( )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the Prison Rape Elimination Act (PREA) of 2003, it was not clear the extent to which state departments of corrections (DOCs) were addressing sexual violence in systematic ways. In fact, little information existed about what strategies were being put into practice in prison systems across the country. PREA changed the way DOCs addressed prison sexual violence (PSV). Mandatory recordkeeping and a push for eliminating such incidents moved many DOCs to develop specific responses to PSV or to further refine approaches already in place. The purpose of this project was to provide a national snapshot of DOC initiatives to address PSV, as well as to identify specific practices that seemed to be, in the absence of formal evaluations, particularly promising or innovative in nature
Multi-site adult drug court evaluation (MADCE), 2003-2009( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Multi-Site Adult Drug Court Evaluation (MADCE) study included 23 drug courts and 6 comparison sites selected from 8 states across the country. The purpose of the study was to: (1) Test whether drug courts reduce drug use, crime, and multiple other problems associated with drug abuse, in comparision with similar offenders not exposed to drug courts, (2) address how drug courts work and for whom by isolating key individual and program factors that make drug courts more or less effective in achieving their desired outcomes, (3) explain how offender attitudes and behaviors change when they are exposed to drug courts and how these changes help explain the effectiveness of drug court programs, and (4) examine whether drug courts generate cost savings

Technology, teen dating violence and abuse, and bullying in three states, 2011-2012( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project examined the role of technology use in teen dating violence and abuse, and bullying. The goal of the project was to expand knowledge about the types of abuse experiences youth have, the extent of victimization and perpetration via technology and new media (e.g., social networking sites, texting on cellular phones), and how the experience of such cyber abuse within teen dating relationships or through bullying relates to other life factors. This project carried out a multi-state study of teen dating violence and abuse, and bullying, the main component of which included a survey of youth from ten schools in five school districts in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, gathering information from 5,647 youth about their experiences. The study employed a cross-sectional, survey research design, collecting data via a paper-pencil survey. The survey targeted all youth who attended school on a single day and achieved an 84 percent response rate
Transitional jobs for ex-prisoners : implementation, two year impacts and costs of the Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) Prisoner Reentry Program( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost 700,000 people are released from prisons in the United States each year, and most experts believe that stable employment is critical to their successful transition into the community. The Center for Employment Opportunities (CEO) in New York is an employment program for ex-prisoners: participants are placed in paid transitional jobs shortly after enrollment, with supervision and support. Once they show good performance in the transitional job, participants get help finding a permanent job and additional support after placement. This report presents interim findings from an evaluation of the program, as part of the federal government Enhanced Services for the Hard-to-Employ Demonstration and Evaluation Project. In 2004-2005, a total of 977 ex-prisoners who reported to CEO were assigned, at random, to a program group that was eligible for all of CEO's services or to a control group that received basic job search assistance. These interim finings cover the first 2 years of the project, and include the implementation of the program, impacts on participation and service receipt, impacts on employment and earnings, impacts on recidivism, impacts on other outcomes, and cost analysis

Exploratory research into the intersection of forced marriage, intimate partner violence, and sexual violence : Grant # 2013-VA-CX-0033( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This exploratory study aimed to broaden the literature on forced marriage to examine forced marriage in the United States context. The study focused on the nature and scope of forced marriage in the context of the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, as well as the adequacy of service provider and criminal and civil justice stakeholder responses to forced marriage. Based on 7,791 valid responses to an Urban Institute survey administered through Google Consumer Survey, we estimated a sample prevalence rate of forced marriage in the U.S. at 11.2%. We then conducted analyses of interviews with 24 people who experienced forced marriage or knew someone who did and 15 service providers and other stakeholders. Through this, we explored both the intersection between forced marriage and violence and abuse as well as services needed and received by those who have experience forced marriage."
Vulnerable Youth: Identifying Their Need for Alternative Educational Settings by Janine M Zweig( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the extent to which alternative education can meet the needs of disconnected youth who are at risk of economic and social hardship. It summarizes characteristics of disconnected youth, risk factors associated with disconnection, and characteristics of students in selected alternative education settings. The most common factors used to characterize disconnected youth relate to individual education and employment activity. The paper notes variations in disconnection by race and by state and distinguishes between short- and long-term disconnection. It discusses characteristics related to four areas: school completion and dropping out; teen pregnancy and parenting; involvement in the juvenile justice system; and leaving the foster care system. There are no consistent estimates of the number of youth in alternative education programs or schools, although there are survey data on youth enrolled in alternative education in or through public, private, and Catholic k-12 schools. Overall, mainstream education and public systems are not adequately meeting the needs of all high risk youth. Typical populations of students in alternative schools are dropouts, students with disabilities, and students engaging in health risk behaviors. Having students enrolled in alternative settings provides opportunities to reach out to them, address their needs, and help them reconnect to their education. (Contains 38 references.) (Sm)
Sexual assault forensic exam payment practices study : reports of practices from the field( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Violence Against Women Act, reauthorized in 2005, mandated states receiving STOP funding to provide free sexual assault forensic exams (SAFEs) to victims without having to report the sexual assault to law enforcement. States were given until January 2009 to fully comply with the mandate. This study is the first evaluation to look at implementation practices since the January 2009 deadline. The presentation includes background information on the reauthorization, the study design, and findings from national surveys of STOP administrators, compensation administrators, and state coalitions. Findings from the surveys cover best practices and challenges for the implementation of VAWA 2005

The National Study of Girl Neighborhood Power: An Out-of-School Programfor Girls Ages 9 to 14 by Janine M Zweig( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study examined the types of activities offered through Girl Neighborhood Power (gnp) and the extent to which low-income girls reported positive experiences and outcomes related to psychological, social, behavioral, and academic adjustment. Four communities implemented federally funded gnp programs, which provided various activities and services to promote positive youth development through coordinated community efforts of multiple local agencies. Components included health education, health care access, adult mentoring, before/after school activities, community service and volunteering opportunities, journaling, and career development. Activities emphasized preventing substance abuse and premature sexual activity/pregnancy, increasing knowledge and use of health care, promoting healthy behaviors, increasing knowledge about career opportunities, and building confidence in many domains. Researchers surveyed and interviewed girls, their parents, and community partners. Gnp positively influenced girls' social, psychological, academic, and behavioral adjustment. Girls reported developing more social skills and self-confidence and an interest in community service. Expressing feelings through journaling helped girls handle frustration. They felt that learning not to use drugs was a very important component of gnp. Gnp helped girls learn how to live healthy lives. Community partners perceived gnp as a valuable out-of-school program.
