CMRJ591 - Seminar on Juvenile Justice and Behavior

Course Details

Course Code: CMRJ591 Course ID: 4464 Credit Hours: 3 Level: Graduate

In today’s criminal justice system, there is an ever increasing need to understand the nature of juvenile offending. All too often students of criminal justice are quick to apply their knowledge of adult offenders to juveniles, which is problematic. This leads to the mind-set that juveniles are adults and are thereby capable of making adult decisions, thereby requiring that they receive adult punishments. This graduate level class will break down the common misconceptions about juveniles by providing the student with information on childhood development, the effects of punishment on children and level of culpability that a child might have in terms of their behavior. Additionally this course will focus on effective treatment options and how these options influence the juvenile justice system.
