Theories of Delinquency Intervention and Treatment Research Strategies
This chapter discusses how the Adolescent Diversion Project attempted to bridge the gap between delinquency intervention theories and treatment research methods. Thus it introduces both the intervention theories and the research methods used by the project. Because of the complexity of the issues we tried to address, two distinct research strategies were utilized—both experimental and correlational. Therefore, the questions that each strategy attempted to address will be described here as well.
