Abstract: The theme of the conference was "Juvenile Justice in 2000: Accentuate the Positive." The General Information Section of this manual describes the various activities that were scheduled for the conference participants. Other sections of the report contain materials related to the topics that were addressed on each of the three days of the conference. Materials for the first day included descriptions of caucus sessions and materials on the impact of the children's court on the juveniles served, a compendium of programs that work for youth, a prosecutor's perspective on addressing juvenile violence, the prevalence of mental disorders among children in the juvenile justice system, the Safe Schools Initiative, and a truancy intervention project. Other programs and issues considered on the first day were teen courts, a father-friendly approach to child support, domestic violence, waivers to criminal court, the sexual exploitation of children, and the future of juvenile probation and parole. Among the topics considered on the conference's second day were the successes of the juvenile justice system, legal representation for children in abuse and neglect proceedings, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, hate crimes, ethical considerations in juvenile cases, and the future for a juvenile justice system in transition. Among the topics addressed on the conference's third day were services for victims of juvenile violent crimes, the abolition of the death penalty for juvenile offenders, and myths and facts about juvenile crime. A faculty list and a conference evaluation form are provided in the manual.
