Understanding the Juvenile Justice System
In response to concerns that delinquency rates for youth involved in the child welfare system are significantly higher than for other youth, the August 2007 issue of Practice Notes provides an overview of the juvenile justice system for child welfare practitioners. Features include a brief description of the juvenile justice system, juvenile justice terms, and resources and programs available in North Carolina for decreasing delinquent behavior.
Practice Notes is published by the North Carolina Division of Social Services and the Family and Children's Research Project.
