Abstract:

This paper examines the relevance of the intersections of gender and ethnicity in implementing correctional programs for adolescent females. Criminological scholars and practitioners have become increasingly concerned with gender- and culturally-specific delinquency programming in the past decade. There remains relatively little examination, however, of the intersections of gender, race, and ethnicity in such programs, particularly those delivered in an institutional setting (Foley, 2008). This paper reviews the existing literature, using the author's own research to illustrate the challenges associated with implementing treatment programs with a culturally diverse population. This qualitative research evaluated the process and outcomes of an animal-assisted psychotherapy program that was delivered to residentially-placed at-risk and delinquent girls. The majority of participating girls reported attitudinal, relational, and/or behavioral improvements. Many also reported using the program itself to cope with the negativity which permeates their institutional environment. One-fifth reported no effects, however, and the vast majority of these girls were Latina. In fact, attrition was significantly higher for Latina girls, relative to non-Latina (Caucasian and African American) girls. This "failure to engage" is examined in attempt to better understand how to best address intersectionality in juvenile correctional programming.
