This volume offers a comprehensive guide to youth justice practice based on a grounding of academic research and an understanding of how the youth justice system operates. Lessons from the past, current challenges and new directions are all explored. The discussion of practice provides a remodelled systems management approach, fitting it for contemporary challenges. The book provides a balance between an analysis of past policy and practical strategies for present day issues such as parental responsibility, risk and restorative justice.
