Juvenile Delinquency

Theory to Practice

Robert McNamara

  • Each chapter begins with a commonly held assumption about delinquency, and offers a fact-based explanation
  • Boxed inserts on applying everyday theory from real world examples help students connect current research and practices to the juvenile justice field
  • Videotaped interviews offer students insights by allowing them to read, see, and hear convicted juveniles describe their own experiences
  • "You Make the Call" exercises provide examples of real-world problems that juvenile justice system officials (e.g. police officers, judges, probation and correctional officers) encounter, giving students the opportunity to learn about career opportunities and the challenges that they'll confront in the field
  • Ancillary materials include a comprehensive Instructor's Manual, Test Bank, PowerPoint slides, and student resources such as study flashcards
