Safer Society Press is proud to publish this important new book. The Forward-Focused Model (FFM) for treating and rehabilitating adolescents with serious offending behaviors was developed by Nancy Calleja working with the California Department of Juvenile Justice. The FFM reflects our most significant new knowledge about adolescents with serious offending behaviors, including a primary focus on using adolescent development to both conceptualize behavior problems and to effectively treat adolescents, an emphasis on the role of trauma and risk factors, the promotion of pro-social identity development and social support, the use of experiential learning, and the development of effective coping skills. The developmentally-informed model was created specifically for residential programs, but can be applied to outpatient services as well. This book introduces the FFM and the empirical knowledge upon which it is based. A facilitatorís guide and a youth workbook will be available in Spring 2015. Together, the three books provide a complete and comprehensive treatment program that also includes quality assurance monitoring tools and an outcomes evaluation.
