Community Treatment of Juvenile Offenders: The DSO Experiments
The DSO (Deinstitutionalization of Status Offenders) Demonstration Projects sought to deinstitutionalise juveniles in the USA -- such as truants and runaways -- who commit acts that would not be crimes if they were adults. This book examines the outcome of the whole DSO experiment, and offers fresh insights into the nature of status offenders and juvenile delinquency.
