CSJJ has formed partnerships with two highly regarded organizations in juvenile justice and delinquency prevention, and youth services. Each of these entities has unique expertise that increases CSJJ’s capacity to address special issues that juvenile justice agencies commonly face. The National Council on Crime and Delinquency (NCCD) has special expertise in the development and use of Structured Decision Making® (SDM) decision-support tools and in conducting research, evaluation, and training to support child- and youth-serving agencies. Second, Cansler Collaborative Resources, Inc. (Raleigh, NC) has an impressive track record of experience within the health and human services and governmental arena to assist governmental and non-profit organizations in management issues in serving children and families and in assessing system performance. In addition, CSJJ collaborates with the following organizations/programs in projects of joint interest.
Vanderbilt University, Peabody Research Institute — CSJJ actively promotes the implementation of Mark Lipsey’s Standardized Program Evaluation Protocol in city, county, and state juvenile justice systems.
CSJJ endorses the Methodist Home for Children‘s Value-Based Therapeutic Environment (VBTE) model of care, a nonpunitive treatment model used in residential and in-home programs for juvenile offenders to teach prosocial behaviors as alternatives to antisocial behaviors.
The CSJJ endorses the Child Development Institute’s evidence-based and cost-beneficial Stop Now And Plan (SNAP®) model programs, SNAP® Boys and corresponding SNAP® Girls, and the SNAP® Youth Justice Model as highly effective cognitive-behavioral programs for high-risk children and juvenile offenders.
