About this product
- DescriptionAn effective administrator must t only have the educational background to understand the foundational basis for the system, but must also be guided by the vision and mission of the organization. Juvenile Justice Administration illustrates through examples and interviews with juvenile justice administrators and other personnel how these organizations and agencies function and provides a comparative analysis of juvenile justice systems across countries and continents. Using a plethora of case studies to demonstrate the issues presented, the book examines: * The historical origins and goals of the juvenile justice system * The tasks performed by juvenile justice administrators * Management theories and administrative models such as the human relations approach, the social systems approach, and organizational models * Juvenile justice personnel and administrative agencies serving endangered children * Laws pertaining to juvenile offenders and children at risk * Police and juvenile justice issues in the United States, Canada, Japan, Austria, and South Africa * Probation, parole, community-based sanctions, and correctional facilities for juvenile offenders The book also explores future trends in juvenile justice administration. As the system increasingly shifts from a punishment-oriented model to a restorative justice approach, this book provides administrators with sufficient background on the topic as well as insight into invative policies and procedures that may prove advantageous to their communities.
