About the Book

This publication focuses on addressing the needs of juvenile status offenders (i.e., youth who run away, are "ungovernable" or truant) and their families. It provides a context for and explanation of the need to better serve families in crisis, reviews the causes and contexts within which youth engage in noncriminal misbehaviors, and suggests legislative and policy strategies to intervene early and divert juvenile status offenders from court systems.
