Show Summary Details


This chapter focuses on interventions for young children with conduct problems who come in conflict with the law. It notes that there is a dearth of evidence-based and developmentally appropriate programs and services for this population, often resulting in punitive measures or no treatment at all. It highlights one program developed by the authors and outlines a number of priorities for future intervention research and practice to serve better this vulnerable population.

Keywords: interventions; conduct problems; punitive measures; young children
