Summary/Abstract: The publication concerns court interventions in the case of juvenile demoralization as well as adolescents who have for various reasons earned the status of juvenile delinquents. It is no coincidence that the authors employ the term “various reasons” which is associated with the very capacious yet vague concept of demoralization. This term is a key category of the Juvenile Delinquents Act which delineates response procedures in cases where an adolescent violates legal, moral and social norms and is raised in conditions which are detrimental to that child’s social development. Many concepts contained in the act are questioned by authors of studies devoted to the analysis of the Polish model of juvenile justice – lawyers, criminologists as well as educators and psychologists. These doubts are discussed in the book and, in addition, this message has been reinforced with data from the authors' own research. The publication adopts several perspectives for the evaluation of the juvenile justice model. However, it is appropriate to explain the absence of strictly legal analyses. Legal themes appear naturally, but they are intentionally left undeveloped and without a deeper examination. It is meant to facilitate the implementation of the aim of the book, which is an attempt to view the relevant law only through the educational functions it should or could perform in relation to children who are at risk of demoralization.
