Annotation: THIS PAPER MAINTAINS THAT CHANGING THE ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIORS OF DELINQUENT AND DELINQUENCY-PRONE CHILDREN REQUIRES SPECIFIC INTERVENTION AND THAT THIS INTERVENTION SHOULD OCCUR IN THE SCHOOL SETTING.
Abstract: IT IS ALSO PROPOSED THAT THE INTERVENTION SHOULD BE A COLLABORATIVE EFFORT AMONG SCHOOLS AND VARIOUS OTHER COMMUNITY AGENCIES. PRACTICAL APPROACHES TO DIAGNOSIS AND INTERVENTION AT THE SCHOOL LEVEL ARE OFFERED. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT SINCE SCHOOLS ARE MORE LIKELY TO INITIATE A PROGRAM FOR PREVENTION THAN FOR TREATMENT, IT MAKES SENSE TO BEGIN WITH EFFORTS IN THAT DIRECTION. (AUTHOR ABSTRACT)
