Inside a Juvenile Incarceration Center: Exploring Theories of Crime and Rehabilitation Practices

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



Abstract:

Two year ethnography of a juvenile incarceration center (JIC) explores crime and rehabilitation theories and their enactment. Data includes interviews and observations with youth, teachers, and staff. Interview and observation protocols examine when and how crime and rehabilitation theories are invoked, when and how facility rules are and are not enforced, relationships among informants, and understandings of rehabilitation practices. The research is a comprehensive consideration of two aspects of the rehabilitation culture in the JIC: 1.) the actual theories behind rehabilitation practices, and 2.) the living-out of these theories through rhetoric and interactions. Cicourel, Weider, and Favret-Saada inform the methodology. The research problem is grounded in policy, legal, and academic literature. Findings discuss the role of normative talk and interactions (the dominant culture of rehabilitation) in the JIC, the participation of youth and justice professionals in the maintenance of youth failure, and the impact of alternatives to the dominant culture that share space in the JIC. Recommendations support justice professionals, academics, and rehabilitation programming. The study contributes to the fields of criminal justice, social science, and education. It expands knowledge on JICs and those inside, builds understanding of rehabilitation practices, and scrutinizes extant theories on crime and rehabilitation.
