OJJDP's Model Programs Guide literature reviews provide practitioners and policymakers with relevant research and evaluations on more than 50 juvenile justice topics and programs.
- OJJDP recently added a literature review titled "Intersection of Juvenile Justice and Child Welfare Systems." The review focuses on issues related to dual-system youth (i.e., youth involved in both the juvenile and child welfare systems), the characteristics of both systems, predictors of crossover from one system to the other, and the impacts of programming for this population.
- OJJDP also updated the "Arts-Based Programs and Arts Therapies for At-Risk, Justice-Involved, and Traumatized Youths" literature review, which explores research about the benefit of arts engagement across different youth populations.
The Model Programs Guide offers additional literature reviews on a variety of topics, including bullying, drug courts, mentoring, and juvenile reentry.
