Exploring the Cycle of Juvenile Justice

In this presentation, Professor Robert M. Worley analyzes the final chapters of Bernard and Kurkychek's (2010) book, The Cycle of Delinquency. Based upon the book, Worley argues that the juvenile justice system is returning to lenient treatments and abadoning the 'get tough' movement. He also contends that there is likely to be a reintroduction of lenient treatments in juvenile justice. Worley concludes the presentation by suggesting that we are likely to see a return of the medical model of treatment for delinquents.
