Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Children who commit serious crimes present a paradox. As children they belong to a group which is generally regarded as vulnerable and in need of protection. As criminals, on the other hand, they are to be condemned, punished and deterred. This unique text argues that it is possible to reconcile the competing and often polarized demands of justice and welfare so that the child's criminality and vulnerability are simultaneously accommodated.
