Formerly incarcerated youth require social and community support

  • April 30, 2010 5:00am

Silvina Ituarte, associate professor of criminal justice administration, had her article accepted for publication in Children and Youth Services Review.

In "Coming back home: The reintegration of formerly incarcerated youth with service implications", Ituarte analyzes the needs of formerly incarcerated youth with a focus on the implications for social and educational service systems.

“Juveniles re-entering the community after a period of incarceration, or in some cases after multiple periods of incarceration, display a number of needs that contribute to their offense history and that have serious implications for post-release success. Ideally, communities would respond prior to incarceration with preventive programs. As our review suggests, most if not all juvenile offenders require social and community support, developmentally appropriate educational and occupational services, assistance finding housing and developing independent living skills, and services to address physical and mental health needs. “

CSUEB faculty, students, and staff may read the entire article online via the library.
