The Causes and Correlates Studies: Findings and Policy Implications
by Terence P. Thornberry, David Huizinga, and Rolf Loeber

Developing effective intervention programs based on scientific understanding of the origins of delinquency is essential to the prevention of delinquent behavior. The Causes and Correlates study findings have important implications for the design of such programs.

Strategic Risk-Based Response to Youth Gangs
by Phelan A. Wyrick and James C. Howell

Establishing a comprehensive communitywide approach may not be a practical option for every community. Strategic risk-based responses to youth gangs can be adopted, however, even in the absence of a communitywide response and regardless of whether the focus is prevention, intervention, or suppression of gangs.
