Youth in Conflict with the Law
This course is part of the following part-time on campus and/or online program(s):
Vulnerable and at-risk youth are often involved in the justice system and child and youth care practitioners come into contact with these youth in a variety of work settings. Students explore the multifaceted profile of justice-involved youth, the court process and current legislation which governs legal sanctions. Course materials, discussion and case application are aimed at ensuring students are familiar with best practices when intervening with justice-involved youth. Guest speakers provide a focus on agencies in Ottawa who serve this special population.
All sections for this course are in progress.
