Summary "Treating Chronic Juvenile Offenders presents several promising methods for treating chronic juvenile offenders that have proved to be effective in reducing juvenile crime. The book features the Oregon Multidimensional Treatment Foster Care (MTFC) program, which has emerged as an intervention model for chronic juvenile offenders who are already placed out of the home, typically incarcerated or in residential treatment facilities. The author presents and discusses factors that are known to influence the onset and escalation of antisocial behavior along with their implications for the design and implementation of community-based programs. Dr. Chamberlain also describes variations of MTFC for specific populations such as girls and young children with behavioral disorders
Throughout the book, the author draws from the rich history of research on the development and treatment of antisocial behavior in children and adolescents, which has paved the way for the articulation of intervention models aimed at working with some of society's most troublesome youngsters."--BOOK JACKET
