Fundamentals & Developmental Psychology in Youth Corrections

Second Edition

By Nicolien du Preez, Willem Luyt

As a training guide for students of the youth corrections system, this book offers in-depth and well-structured theoretical and normative information, together with guidelines on how to implement such knowledge in the correctional system. Covering both historical and comparative perspectives, the book follows an approach to youth crime and youth justice aligned to the South African Child Justice Bill, which focuses on diversion, non-custodial measures, and restorative justice, instead of imprisonment. The themes fit equally well into the constitutional framework of South African society and embrace the value of human dignity and the principle of inclusion.
