October 25, 2013

On November 6, 2013, at 1 p.m. ET, the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research will present the 1-hour Webinar "Working with Data from the Pathways to Desistance Study." This study, funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), followed 1,354 adolescent serious offenders for 7 years after their court involvement. The data have relevance to law and psychology research, including risk assessment, perceptions of the risks of crime, and developmental trends.
