Zoom Webinar (link to be provided upon registration)
Have you wanted to know more about what works in providing the best services for juveniles involved
in the justice system? Do you want a chance to read with a researcher and ask questions specific to your
experience as a provider or administrator? How about the chance to discuss the book with the author?
Dr. Christopher J. Sullivan is a leading scholar in juvenile justice and developmental criminology and a
professor in the School of Criminal Justice at the University of Cincinnati. He has led Office of Juvenile Justice
and Delinquency Prevention and Ohio Department of Youth Services-funded research on topics such as
juvenile risk and needs assessment, juvenile justice reform, and racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile
justice system. His book Taking Juvenile Justice Seriously: Developmental Insights and System Challenges
was awarded the 2020 Outstanding Contribution Award, given by American Society of Criminology’s
Division of Development and Life Course Criminology.
Participants of this reading group will be supported as they read the text, have opportunity to ask questions,
and participate in live discussion across three, one-hour sessions with author, Dr. Sullivan, and Utah Criminal
Justice Center Senior Research Analyst Derek Mueller. During the final session, participants will have the
opportunity to bring the concepts from the text into their experience working in Utah communities during a
panel discussion featuring Utah leaders in Juvenile Justice.
This is a free event
3 NASW-endorsed CEUs will be provided for the complete series
