Juveniles and Young Adults in Prison & Probation
Reminder - Call for Papers
1-2 December 2020, The Hague, Netherlands
On 1-2 December 2020 EuroPris together with CEP will organize a one-and-a-half-day workshop on Juveniles and Young Adult Offenders in Prison and Probation in The Hague, The Netherlands.
When talking about criminal behaviour and types of sanctions and measures imposed on people who have committed crimes, the vast majority of times our focus is on adults and on treatment programs mainly designed for the male-adult population. The reality is that there are also juveniles and young adults who are exposed to a series of risk factors, such as poor parental skills, criminal behaviour accepted by family and peer group, low interest/commitment in school or work, peer rejection, differences in temperament, impulsivity, low level of empathy or remorse, drug use, the impact of school policies toward delinquency and the broader influences of the neighbourhood/community – all aspects being able to lead to antisocial behaviour and committing crimes. Their status of juveniles or young adults as well as their neuropsychological development mean that more attention should be paid to what type of sanctions and measures are imposed.
This expert workshop will address the perspective of different European experts in the field of juveniles and young adults who have committed crimes, both from interventions in the community and closed regime institutions.
To that regard EuroPris and CEP would like to invite you to submit a short paper by using this template. We welcome papers on different topics related to juveniles and young adult offenders, such as: diversion services, community interventions, restorative justice, risk assessment, needs assessment, early planning through the gate service, among others. Please consult the full list of possible topics here for the papers’ submission.
If you would be interested to present at the workshop please submit your paper to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th of September 2020.
