This book presents a collection of essays from some of Canada’s most well known scholars on the safety, health and well-being of children and youth. The introductory chapters provide a useful overview of the concept of crime prevention and explore both historical and contemporary research describing Canada’s experience in this area. The remainder of the book builds on this framework with articles addressing topical issues such as: evidence-based crime prevention, early intervention models, youth gangs, violence against young women and the experience of Aboriginal youth.
Subjects: crime prevention, social conditions, juvenile delinquency, juvenile justice
