[Research Report] Positive Youth Justice: Framing Justice Interventions Using the Concepts of Positive Youth Development

Butts, Jeffrey A., Gordon Bazemore, & Aundra Saa Meroe (2010). Positive Youth Justice--Framing Justice Interventions Using the Concepts of Positive Youth Development. Washington, DC: Coalition for Juvenile Justice.
