Connection of Child Maltreatment & Juvenile Justice
Tuesday, October 16, 2018, 10:00 AM - 3:00 PM EDT
Category: Training

Research has shown that children who have been abused or neglected are more likely to become involved in the juvenile justice system and, once involved, they often receive differential treatment in the juvenile justice system, are more likely to penetrate the system further or to reoffend.  Because minority children are overrepresented in the child welfare system, this phenomenon contributes to disproportionate minority contact in juvenile justice.  The Children’s Law Center has launched a multi-year statewide collaborative project that is designed to prevent delinquency in youth who have been victims of abuse or neglect, and to prevent recidivism in abused or neglected youth who are already involved with the juvenile justice system. This training is a part of that effort.
