ANNOTATION: “[The author's] suggest that PYD [positive youth development] could be an effective framework for designing general interventions for young offenders. A positive youth development framework would encourage youth justice systems to focus on protective factors as well as risk factors, strengths as well as problems, and broader efforts to facilitate successful transitions to adulthood for justice-involved youth. In this report, we propose such a framework for youth justice interventions. That framework is Positive Youth Justice” (p. 7). Sections following an executive summary include: introduction; what positive youth development is; theory into practice; theorizing a new practice paradigm; core assets and practice domains; implementing Positive Youth Justice.
