Promoting Reentry for Young Adults: Perspectives from the Field
This webinar, which is sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, will discuss the ways in which the process of reentry can be difficult for young adults returning to their communities from a custody setting. Despite the risk factors associated with this population, recent research finds they are more amenable to treatment than older adults, thus making early intervention with justice-involved young adults particularly important. Panelists will discuss two ongoing randomized controlled trials of comprehensive trauma-based reentry programming for young, incarcerated males. The role of the practitioner partner in program implementation, successes and challenges in program delivery, and strategies to refine the intervention and its delivery in real-time will also be discussed.
