Description

The Routledge International Handbook of Delinquency and Health presents state-of-the-art research and theorizing on the intersections between health, delinquency, and the juvenile justice system. Organized into three parts—Theoretical and Empirical Foundations; Behavioral, Mental, and Physical Health Conditions; and Prevention, Policy, and Health Promotion Systems—it is the largest and most comprehensive work of its kind, featuring contributions from scholars from multiple nations and global regions.

A growing number of researchers, practitioners, and policymakers from criminology and criminal justice, social work, medicine, psychiatry and psychology, and other health science disciplines engage with marginalized adolescent populations who are at elevated risk for violence and delinquency, alcohol and other drug use, health and mental health problems, and other difficulties directly related to public safety and well-being. These risk factors often lead to short-term (e.g., detention, juvenile residential treatment facilities) and long-term (e.g., prison, parole) contact with the criminal justice system. As these fields increasingly overlap, the distinctions between them are blurred. Sound decision-making in the juvenile justice system depends on adequate research and policy at the intersection of delinquency and health. 

This volume represents an agenda-setting scholarly resource for the expansion of research and policy-making across the international delinquency and health continuum, and will be an essential resource for all who study or work in the field.

Reviews

I am delighted to welcome this wide-ranging International Handbook, which demonstrates the importance of health factors in explaining and preventing crime and violence across the life course. It shows the great advances in knowledge and practice that can be achieved by treating crime as a public health problem and by studying the interplay of biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors. It should be mandatory reading for everyone who wishes to understand and reduce delinquency.

David P. Farrington, Emeritus Professor of Psychological Criminology, Cambridge University

The editors have brought together the study of criminology, public and physical health and health disparities to provide a novel perspective that will appeal to researchers and practitioners in all three fields. Chapter authors provide theory and evidence on a broad set of topics that provide guidance on this integrated perspective. Finally, practitioners will find this book useful for its suggestions of structural changes, promotion, prevention, early intervention, treatment and aftercare approaches throughout the life course.
