Title

Lost in transition: exploring young people's experiences of transition from youth detention in the ACT

Publication Date

2008

Abstract

This study, funded by the Office for Children, Youth and Family Support (ACT Department of Disability, Housing and Community Services), attempts to develop an understanding of the way that young people experience detention, their transitions back into the community and the ways that the system may achieve better outcomes at each stage of their reintegration. Ultimately, it attempts to answer the key research questions: How do young people experience the transition from detention back to the community? What are the challenges that limit the success of their reintegration?
