Why Holistic Case Management is Essential in Juvenile Justice

Posted by GVT Admin on Jul 17, 2023 10:33:00 AM

According to the most recent data from 2020, the arrest rate of juvenile offenders in the United States is decreasing. Nonetheless, despite a 71% decrease, over 400,000 juveniles were arrested in America in 2020. Juvenile case managers act as liaisons between young offenders, their families, the courts, and other agencies involved in the juvenile justice program of a municipality.  Because they deal with the legality of detained juveniles, juvenile justice case management is one of the most difficult domains of the social service system.  

They are also driving the implementation of a holistic case management approach to juvenile justice. This method considers the reasons that contributed to the juvenile's criminal acts, rules out the possibility of mental health disorders, and finally considers prevention.  

We are shedding light on this comprehensive strategy and its importance in juvenile justice case management.

Posted by Mandy Frary on Mar 16, 2023 9:00:00 AM

How we care for the most vulnerable among us is one of the great challenges of our time. As Mahatma Ghandi once said, “A nation’s greatness is measured by how it treats its weakest members.” And social workers are hard-pressed to find one group in more dire need of urgent attention than children at risk of neglect or abuse.

Children deprived of a safe, nurturing family environment are entitled to special protection, assistance and alternative care. And today’s caseworkers can most effectively address this with the right social services software.

The Complexities of the Juvenile Justice System and Case Management

Posted by GVT Admin on Feb 9, 2023 10:45:00 AM

On any given day, an estimated 60,000 youths under the age of 18 are incarcerated in an American jail. Given that children under the age of 18 account for approximately 22 percent of the US population, this figure is a concerning reflection of the state of the American juvenile justice system.
However, believe it or not. Today's situation is vastly improved over yesterdays. Thanks in part to social service organizations that have long advocated for institutional training of youth rather than confinement to reduce juvenile crime rates.

Here are some of the complexities of the country's juvenile justice system, as well as how it has evolved over time, as well as some areas where non-profit intervention is still needed.

Juvenile Justice Reform

Posted by GVT Admin on Nov 2, 2022 10:45:00 AM

Few people outside the social work profession are aware that juvenile justice is administered on a state-by-state basis. While there is no national system that establishes norms beyond the adult criminal justice system, (processes include arrest, detainment, petitions, hearings, adjudications, dispositions, placement, probation, and reentry) the juvenile justice system in most states operates according to the premise that youth are fundamentally different from adults, both in terms of level of responsibility and potential for rehabilitation. Whereas sentencing for a serious crime following a guilty verdict in the criminal justice system often results in jail or prison time, the juvenile justice system seeks to avoid incarceration whenever possible.
