Publications

The Juvenile Court Judges’ Commission provides juvenile justice personnel with up-to-date information on current trends and issues from both the state and national perspectives through specialized publications. Several of the publications available are the result of efforts by Commission staff and/or stakeholders, while others are the result of work completed by nationally-renowned researchers and practitioners. These publications exist to advance juvenile justice personnel’s knowledge and expertise, and to enhance their skills when interacting with juvenile offenders, families, victims, and communities.
