Synopsis: Youth with emotional and behavioral problems who are also involved in juvenile justice systems have complex needs that often are best addressed through collaborative systems that coordinate the efforts of individual agencies. This study examines the effectiveness of systems of care in reducing the risk of juvenile justice involvement. The findings demonstrate greater reductions in the incidence of juvenile justice involvement among children served in the system-of-care setting, as compared to those served in a services-as-usual environment. In addition, children served by the system of care are less likely to commit more serious offenses.
