Pathways to Desistance Release Data Available

NAHDAP is pleased to announce the release of the next study in the Pathways to Desistance series. The new "Release" data file contains interviews conducted with the juvenile offender after a stay in a residential or institutional facility. The interview focuses on the youths’ perceptions regarding various aspects of their environment during their stay. Over half of the study’s participants completed interviews in this particular aspect of the Pathway’s project. Most youth had more than one stay in a facility over the course of the seven years that they were followed. Therefore most youths will have more than one interview in the data file. Due to the sensitive nature of some of the topics covered in the release interview this study has been restricted. Please visit the study’s home page to read more about this study and to apply for access.
