This pathbreaking book addresses the connection between childhood trauma and juvenile delinquency. Trauma and Juvenile Delinquency: Theory, Research, and Interventions begins with two chapters presenting theoretical models of the relationship between trauma and the development/persistence of antisocial behavior. Another chapter addresses trauma-related assessment issues for juveniles, and several chapters present cutting-edge research on various aspects of the relationship between trauma and delinquency. Finally, several chapters focus on theory-based and empirically supported trauma-focused therapeutic interventions for juvenile delinquents. No other single source provides such breadth and depth of coverage on this topic!

From the editor: “Disruptive behavior disorders are by far the largest type of mental health referral for children and adolescents, while juvenile crime and violence continue to be major social concerns. Several bodies of literature have converged to suggest that trauma is more than incidental to the problem of juvenile delinquency, it contributes to the problem.”

Trauma and Juvenile Delinquency: Theory, Research, and Interventions explores:
how trauma relates to conduct disorder
the connection between traumatic victimization and oppositional/defiance problems
ways to assess PTSD in adolescents
how exposure to violence, delinquent activity, and posttraumatic stress symptomatology are related
the unique trauma histories of incarcerated girls and the problems they have adjusting to life within the juvenile justice system
how to develop group therapy services for incarcerated male juvenile offenders with PTSD
This valuable book also examines the effectiveness of EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for boys with conduct problems, MASTR (Motivation - Adaptive Skills - Trauma Resolution) for teens with school-related problems, and CPT (Cognitive Processing Therapy) for juvenile delinquents with post-traumatic stress disorder. Reviews: “VERY READABLE and chock full of research studies. The chapters on adolescent females are particularly enlightening. . . . Shows the promising results of EMDR in treating traumatized adolescents. Juvenile delinquents are a very difficult population to treat, and this book can assist clinicians in their work.”
Divine Information Services

“After thirty years of community psychiatry practice and after repeatedly being struck by the connection between trauma and delinquency, I am gratified that, under the leadership of Dr. Greenwald, a well-qualified group of mental health theoreticians, researchers, and interventionists have contributed to A CUTTING-EDGE BOOK on the relationship between trauma and juvenile delinquency.”
Carl C. Bell, MD, FAPA, FAC Psych., Director of Public and Community Psychiatry, University of Illinois at Chicago

“As the director of a trauma-specific agency that has provided cutting-edge treatment to crime victims since 1995, I understand the tremendous importance of this book. REQUIRED READING for everyone in the system, anyone reviewing a grant, and for any agency that proposes to help juveniles who are at risk or in the system.”
Teresa Descilo, MSW, CTS, Executive Director, Victim Services Center, Miami, Florida
