Jeff Bry, North Dakota State University

ABSTRACT
Negative behavior in Youth Correctional Centers and other institutions of correcton are not a new phenomenon. How to effectively deal with and treat negative behavior has been a problem since the inception of the first institutions for correction. A better understanding of what is effective and what is not is necessary to effectively treat or correct those individuals who are in placement of correction. The purpose of this research is to examine juvenile rule infraction, in the attempt to discover causation behind the infractions. Issues of environment, staff, cottages and other variables are examined.
