Exploring the Risk Factors of Juvenile Recidivism According to Agency Workers
Katherine Zoe Lynch
Juveniles in detention centers, rehabilitation centers, and other criminal justice facilities face legal, relationship, economic, and mental stress. For some young people in the criminal justice system, they may have no idea where to turn to after they get out, leading to recidivism and relapsing into the system after committing another crime. This research project examines the risk factors dealing with juvenile recidivism and the possible perceptions of individuals working in these facilities. Using interviews with adult agency members who work with at-risk juveniles, this project seeks to gain a better understanding of juvenile recidivism, particularly identifying risk factors.
