1. FAQ's
Why work with families?
  • Precursors of juvenile crime, truancy, and behavior problems related to family factors include poor parental monitoring, absence of effective parenting skills, high frequency of family transitions including father absence, a history of criminality in the family, and lack of parental involvement and appreciation for education and school failure.
Why a multiple family group model?
  • Traditional methods of rehabilitation have not been shown to be effective in preventing recidivism.
  • Group processes are effective in reaching families who distrust professional systems.
  • Family group interventions can change behaviors within the family that may contribute to juvenile delinquency.
  • Power of the group provides validation and hope.
