An Examination of Outcomes from a Canadian Youth Violent Offender Treatment Program

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



Abstract:

Youth violence is a serious societal issue. Yet, in Canada, there is limited research to inform the development and evaluation of treatment programs for violent youth. We examined the 3.5 year outcomes of serious and violent young offenders following treatment in a cognitive-behavioral-based youth violent offender treatment program. Overall, results were promising, indicating that treatment completion was associated with a significant reduction in formal violent and nonviolent recidivism over the 3.5 year follow-up period, as compared to untreated youths. Findings are discussed in the context of international data examining effective treatment approaches for violent youth.
