Implementing an Adolescent Developmental Approach in Juvenile Justice
January 21, 2015 at 3:00 PM ET
Over the past decade, research has given us a new understanding of adolescent brain development. In 2013 and 2014, the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) released groundbreaking reports examining the implications of this research, proposing a developmental approach in juvenile justice, and outlining the role of the federal government in implementing reforms.
Please join CJJ for a webinar on “Implementing an Adolescent Developmental Approach in Juvenile Justice” on January 21, 2015 at 3:00 PM ET.
This webinar will briefly describe the key findings from the original NAS report and explore strategies and policies to effectively reform the juvenile justice system. Participants will learn about the adolescent development research shaping new reforms and the recommended action steps for federal and state government, as well as State Advisory Groups (SAGs).
