Promoting Positive Youth Development in Juvenile Justice Settings: What Do We Need to Know?
Tuesday, June 7, 2022 | 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. EDT
Register for the webinar.

Presented by Gina Vincent, Ph.D.

Over the last 10 years, juvenile justice systems have shifted towards a desire for use of developmentally appropriate supervision practices, such as Positive Youth Development (PYD). The “Optimizing Supervision and Service Strategies to Reduce Reoffending” Study funded by the National Institute of Justice seeks to determine how to effectively implement PYD into community supervision and case planning. This project was designed to answer multiple practical questions to advance juvenile probation practices: For example, “What strengths-based services will result in the largest gains for youth and largest reductions in recidivism?” “How can the PYD approach be implemented with the Risk-Need-Responsivity approach in case planning to maximize reductions in recidivism?” This presentation will describe the protective factors and strengths-based services thought to be most influential in reducing recidivism based on youths’ developmental stage and hypotheses about how these may be used in case planning.

Gina Vincent, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Director of Translational Law & Psychiatry Research and Co-Director Law & Psychiatry at iSPARC.
