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)

Assessing the relationship of adult criminal careers to juvenile careers by Lyle W Shannon( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Much of the concern with juvenile delinquency has been based on the premise that delinquent behavior leads to adult crime. Police and court records of three cohorts comprised of 6,127 persons were analyzed. The most prevalent pattern of delinquent behavior was one of declining seriousness and discontinuation after the teenage period. With few exceptions, intervention by the agencies of social control did not play even a moderate role in decreasing the seriousness of adult controls. It was apparent that police contacts and more serious contacts had their highest incidence in the inner city. While removal from the community may appear to be a solution, the records show that most juveniles and adults will return and must be integrated into the community. (JAC)
