During the free online event, Pittman and Bilchik will discuss a variety of topics including:
- A large meta-analysis of juvenile justice programs concluded that "there is no indication that there were juveniles whose risk level was so high that they did not respond to effective interventions"
- The analysis of more than 500 studies identified four elements of a successful program
- A standardized program evaluation protocol can be used to identify gaps in major juvenile justice and child welfare system practices
- This model is similar to the David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality used by many after school systems
