Rethinking Approaches to Youth Justice
In this compelling, thought-provoking and sometimes heartbreaking book, the authors use the stories of their young clients to illustrate the very real costs of the current system, analyzing theories behind youth justice, and how these are reflected in Canadian legislation both past and present.
Demonstrating the linkages between law and risk, these essays tackle some difficult topics, including dangerous offenders, sex offender notification, drug courts, genetic research, pesticide use, child pornography, and tobacco advertising.
Dutton’s rethinking of the fundamentals of intimate partner violence is essential reading for psychologists, policy makers, and those dealing with the sociology of social science, the relationship of psychology to law, and explanations of adverse behaviour.
