  • PMD: 6,8
  • Skill Level: Intermediate
  • Session 7: Psychological Services for Specific Groups of Students

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. advocate within their school communities as well as at the state-level for increased focus and efforts toward improving interagency collaboration around supporting youth returning from the juvenile justice system.
  2. describe the barriers to school reentry and analyze their own school’s reentry practices.
  3. engage in dialogue around the importance of recognizing biases, implementing antiracist policies, and using reentry practices that reduce stigma and amplify student voice.


Supportive school reentry after a youth experiences the juvenile justice system is an important factor in addressing the negative impact of juvenile justice involvement and promoting positive outcomes. This presentation highlights the findings of a qualitative study which examined youth experiences and the process of reentry, and provides a framework for planning, implementing, and monitoring effective and meaningful reentry programming.
