The Future of Youth Justice Rehabilitation
The final chapter provides a summary of the arguments presented in the book and discusses these in relation to the current policy and practice environment that exists in the UK. The book’s authors contend that the youth justice system in the UK, certainly in relation to STC provision, is broken and that only a radical overhaul that is centred on holistic approaches focused centrally on young people will fix this. SIM theory, when aligned with criminological theoretical frameworks (specifically ICAP theory combined with desistance theory) is argued to be the answer to better supporting young people involved in criminal activity, both institutionally and in wider society. The chapter will end by presenting policy recommendations for these changes to be adopted, as well as exploring avenues for further research that could develop and test the arguments presented in the book.
