Academic Journal
This review acknowledges the findings of previous research on the high incidence of communication problems among juvenile delinquents. Three research questions are reviewed to help professionals in correctional education understand the communication behaviors of female delinquents and assist them to plan programs for adjudicated youth. Professionals are provided a summary of research findings that pertain to the prevalence of communication problems among female delinquent youth, what delinquents already know about communication, and a description of how youth communicate within a correctional facility. Implications of the communication problems among delinquents are provided to help professionals consider issues as they develop services for youth involved in violence. Suggestions are offered for professionals in correctional education as well as educators in school settings.
