Identifying the Variables that Mediate the Effects of a Comprehensive Prevention Program on Delinquency

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In recent decades, researchers have identified many programs that successfully reduce juvenile delinquency. Evaluations of these programs often, however, do not assess the mediating variables that intervene between program participation and reduced delinquency. Thus, although insight has been gained on which programs are most effective, the question of why they are effective often is not considered. This study addresses this omission by assessing a number of variables that may mediate the effects of a comprehensive intervention on juvenile involvement in violent, property, and substance use offending. This was considered with data from the Children at Risk program (Harrell, Cavanagh, and Sridharan, 1999), a two-year, multi-modal intervention with random assignment that targeted high-risk early adolescents in five U.S. cities.
