Abstract:

This research is based on an educational and therapeutic program for delinquent juvenile boys. The program is currently in use at Green Oak Center, a residential institution located in southeastern Michigan. The institutional program is presented prior to and after inception of Structured Group Interaction, a therapeutic milieu involving group treatment with multiple program youths who came from previous unsuccessful placements.

The study population consists of a pre and post group of youths from similar social environments and with similar family histories. The pre-group or Group I were in residence at Green Oak Center from 1960 through 1969. The post-group or Group II were in residence from 1973 through 1978. A five year period divides the two groups in order to prevent any overlapping contamination between the groups. A total of 122 case files of former Green Oak Center residents were analyzed. There were 62 in Group I and.

60 in Group II.

Records from the Center's files were used to obtain pertinent data for this research. Information taken included facts about racial background, family history, committing offense and the number of violent and nonviolent felonies. Other data gathered includes a factor of institutional adjustment while at Green Oak Center. For this factor, the number of assaultive behavioral incidents committed by each youth while in residence were analyzed to derive the mean number of incidents per youth for Group I and.

For Group II. Also analyzed were the scores obtained by the youths on general educational tests administered upon admission (pre-test) and just prior to release (post-test). Another factor considered was the average length of stay at Green Oak Center for each group.

The youths from Group I were not exposed to Structured Group Interaction which was instituted in 1973. The impact of the Structured Group Interaction on the behavior and length of stay for the youths from Group II was significant. From the analysis of the data for the two groups, it was clear that both the length of stay and the number of incidents of assaultive behavior were affected. Youths from Group II were in residence fewer months and committed fewer incidents of assaultive behavior while.

Institutionalized. The educational growth was relatively the same for both groups, but youths from Group II had shorter terms in residence while attaining similar educational process to youths from Group I.

The greatest effect of the exposure to the Structured Group Interaction Program occurred in the area of assaultive behavior, and not on education as this writer had expected.

There are several limitations of this study. The population includes only male serious juvenile offenders. There is a need for a study over a number of years in other institutions.

This research was presented in hopes that other juvenile institutions could use the information for setting up an educational and group treatment program for delinquent youths. It was for this reason that so much detail was included on the daily operational activities, the structure, and the staffing patterns of Green Oak Center. A secondary purpose of this study was to stimulate further research on Green Oak juvenile treatment program. There could be in depth research on the educational component and.

On the analysis of the group treatment program at Green Oak Center.
