    Abstract

    The handbook aims to encourage a critical interrogation of the ideas that underpin practice, examining such concepts as 'child development', 'crime' and 'punishment', and also provides a descriptive account of current practice in areas such as community corrections and incarceration - examining the evidence base for this and suggesting alternative strategies where appropriate. A key objective is to provide both students and practitioners in youth justice with the confidence to critically reflect on the ideas and current debates that influence work undertaken with young people.
