Risk Assessment in Juvenile Justice: A Guidebook for Implementation

The National Youth Screening & Assessment Project (NYSAP) has published Risk Assessment in Juvenile Justice: A Guidebook for Implementation. This comprehensive guide draws on years of research and actual experiences implementing risk assessment in juvenile justice settings as part of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change Initiative. It provides practical insights and a structure for jurisdictions, juvenile probation or centralized statewide agencies striving to implement risk assessment or to improve their current risk assessment practices.
