OJJDP's Model Programs Guide Updates Restorative Justice Literature Review

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 updated the "Restorative Justice for Juveniles" literature review. This review focuses on programs that emphasize repairing the harm caused by the criminal behavior of justice-involved youth. The review also explores the restorative justice framework, target populations, goals and models of restorative justice programs, and the effectiveness of programs.

The Model Programs Guide offers additional literature reviews on a variety of topics, including bullying, drug courts, mentoring, and juvenile reentry.
