As part of its Research for the Real World Seminar Series, NIJ is hosting the “Dual System Youth: At the Intersection of Child Maltreatment and Delinquency” webinar.
Across the country, child welfare and juvenile justice systems now recognize that youth involved in both systems (i.e., dual system youth) are a vulnerable population who often go unrecognized because of challenges in information-sharing and cross-system collaboration. In light of these challenges, national incidence rates of dual system youth are not known. To address this gap in knowledge, the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention awarded the presenters a grant to (1) propose a methodology to generate a national estimate of dual system youth, their trajectories leading to multiple system involvement, and the key characteristics/trajectories of this population; and (2) identify the successes and challenges associated with cross-system collaboration and information sharing in jurisdictions.
