Mary E. Poulin, Justice Research and Statistics Assn.

This presentation will focus on the development and description of a typology of female juvenile offenders that may be useful in facilitating treatment planning. To examine the interaction between youth type and intervention on outcomes, programs were classified by activities provided. Discussion will center on the interaction between youth type and program type on recidivism. The analyses use data from an outcome evaluation system that tracks juvenile offenders in Philadelphia.
