Abstract

The development of gender-specific programming is gaining attention as the approach that most effectively addresses the needs of female youthful offenders. This study provides a profile of female juvenile offenders, their problems and needs, and suggests psychoeducational approaches for building coping skills to reduce cycles of domestic violence. This is particularly important within a system designed primarily for their male counterparts.
