Brining Strength-Based Philosophy to Life in Juvenile Justice
Juvenile crimes entail all criminal and deviant behaviors among the youth or people young enough to be referred as adults. In response to these crimes, juvenile justice has been put in place to counter the extent of juvenile crimes. Various approaches concerning juvenile justice have been identified which include deficit/problem tradition and the strength-based approach. Strength-based philosophy has been identified as the best approach for dealing with juvenile justice. The article by Laura Nissen concerning the adoption of strength-based approach has been of great importance in addressing juvenile justice. This is based on the precision and intensity of the article in tackling juvenile justice. This paper will explore the adoption of strength-based philosophy in juvenile justice as demonstrated in the article by Laura Nissen on strength-based philosophy.
