OJJDP Releases Findings From Study on Dual System Youth

Corrections Connection - April 28, 2019

Youth who have been involved with both the child welfare and juvenile justice systems-commonly known as "dual system youth"-often are not recognized and do not receive services targeted to their individual needs because of challenges in cross-system communication and collaboration. In an effort to address these challenges, in 2015 OJJDP launched a data collection and analysis project, the Dual System Youth Design Study, led by Denise Herz, Ph.D., and Carly Dierkhising, Ph.D., of California State University, Los Angeles.
