Justice for Young Offenders: Their Needs, Our Responses (Purich Publishing, 2006) by Mary E. Vandergoot (MEd'89, PhD'98)
Set against the backdrop of the recently enacted Canadian Youth Criminal Justice Act, the author takes an interdisciplinary approach to justice issues including: the consequences of charging or not charging a youth with a crime; how youth crime differs from adult crime; what are appropriate sentences; how involvement with the justice system could affect the developing personalities of young people; how it could change their lives - for better or worse. In this complex, ground-breaking analysis, Dr. Vandergoot challenges us to examine the assumptions behind our approach to youth justice, and break the cycle of using legal sanctions to deal with challenged youth.
