New Publication Helps Youth-Serving Practitioners Implement Model

cypm abbreviated guide coverSince 2010, CJJR has worked in numerous communities throughout the United States implementing the Crossover Youth Practice Model. During that time, CJJR has increased its capacity and understanding about what it takes to bring about long-standing change in a community. To that end, CJJR has developed the Crossover Youth Practice Model: An Abbreviated Guide.

This guide focuses on the key implementation phases of the model and was designed for practitioners to gain an understanding of the CYPM and what the work of a jurisdiction will entail. The abbreviated guide serves as a complement to the larger Crossover Youth Practice Model Guidebook. We are excited to share the CYPM: An Abbreviated Guide and its supporting materials, which will be added resources to the youth serving field.

“The Los Angeles County Juvenile Probation Outcomes Study”

by Denise C. Herz, Ph.D., Kristine Chan, MSW, Susan K. Lee, Esq., Melissa Nalani Ross, MPP, Jacquelyn McCroskey, DSW, Michelle Newell, MPP & Caneel Fraser, Esq.

probation cover“Until you have the data, it’s just conversation,” says Dr. Denise Herz, Professor at California State University and an instructor in the Multi-Systems Integration Certificate Program ​at the Center for Juvenile Justice Reform, commenting on what many service providers have thought for years regarding Los Angeles County’s at-risk youth. In a new study led by Herz, data was collected on probation-involved youth in Los Angeles in order to determine where system improvements could be made to better serve youth and their families.

“The Los Angeles County Juvenile Probation Outcomes Study,” released April 1, 2015, found that 1 out of 3 juvenile offenders in Los Angeles County is re-arrested within a year of release. It also found that many of those offenders have already been previously known to the county's child welfare agency, have struggled with mental illness and substance use, and/or have exhibited problems in the school environment – adding evidence to the stories echoed by service providers.  

The study suggests that the County should focus on intervention and multi-system collaboration to potentially make a critical impact on recidivism rates in LA County. “If we are not addressing some of those chaotic factors that make their lives unstable, they are more likely to come back to camps or suitable placement,” Herz says.
