Managing Juvenile Offenders with Mental Illness

Managing juveniles with mental illness is challenging for juvenile careworkers. Mental illness can cause youths to act or react based upon what is going on inside them more so than what is going on around them, which can lead to improper and, sometimes, disruptive behaviors. Careworkers need to understand the mentally ill youths on their unit and what works best for managing their behavior in a particular situation. In this course, you will learn how to identify juvenile offenders with mental illness, both during and after the intake process. You also will learn how to supervise juvenile offenders with mental illness and the techniques for de-escalating a crisis involving these offenders.
