Summary/Abstract: A juvenile detention centre is commonly associated with a prison for under-age offenders, a place of detention for dangerous juvenile delinquents. This volume abolishes this stereotype. It shows juvenile delinquents through the prism of their tragic family histories and psychological and social deficits they manifest; most importantly, however, it demonstrates the wide range and comprehensiveness of social rehabilitation programmes offered by juvenile detention centres and shelters. It provides a description of thematically arranged programmes applied by social rehabilitation staff, including those connected with leisure time (e.g., canoeing, windsurfing, and biking camps), animal care (animal-assisted therapy), theatre, music, arts, sociotherapy, promotion of family life (e.g., baby manikin care training), voluntary social work (e.g., with juvenile offenders taking care of disabled children), and many others. The volume is addressed both to practitioners (as a resource book with detailed activities plans) and to scholars/theoreticians (psychologists, social rehabilitation academic teachers, and students who take psychology and/or social rehabilitation pedagogy as their majors).
