This work covers ways for treating chronic juvenile offenders proven to be effective in reducing juvenile crime. It features the Oregon Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care Program, which has emerged as an intervention model for chronic juvenile offenders who are already placed out of the home, typically incarcerated in residential treatment facilities. It discusses factors that are known to influence the onset and escalation of antisocial behaviour along with their implications for the design and implementation of community-based programmes. It also describes variations of the Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care Program for specific populations such as girls and young children with behavioural disorders.
