Dr. Rosay publishes article in Journal of Juvenile Justice

Dr. André B. Rosay, Justice Center Director, is a co-author of the article, “Applying a Developmental Lens to Juvenile Reentry and Reintegration,” recently published online in the Spring 2012 Journal of Juvenile Justice, 1(2), 95-107.

Reentry is a crucial, but underdeveloped component of the juvenile justice system, and the success of reentry is often judged exclusively in terms of recidivism and/or reincarceration. This paper makes the case that the use of a developmental lens can improve the effectiveness of juvenile reentry through: (1) minor amendments to the intensive Aftercare Program model currently in use, (2) systematic improvements in implementation, and (3) more comprehensive evaluation strategies.
