Conclusions and Implications
This volume began with multiple agenda. The research surrounding the Adolescent Diversion Project was concerned with processes and effects at the level of individual youth and their families, the selection of and effects on change agents, and impact on social control systems. The research surrounding the project was focused on understanding the change process at multiple levels of analysis. Further, the research surrounding the project was concerned with beginning to understand the change process in a very exploratory sense. For the first time, research on the Diversion Project provided data on the relationship between multiple measures of delinquent behavior, theoretical notions on the etiology of delinquency, and systematic attempts to impact those variables that have been proposed as causes of delinquency.
