The Parent, Adolescent and Child Training Skills (PACTS) is a series of highly practical guides designed for use by all practitioners who work with children and their families - community health workers, psychologists, doctors, social workers, teachers, parent educators, therapists, maternal and child health nurses and school counsellors.

It is a fact of life that adults will complain about young people's behaviour and it is not difficult to find example of adult indignation.

The empirical evidence shows that across the adolescent population (both male and female) rated of offending slowly increase after about 8 years of age, climb to a peak at 16-17 years of age, then drop sharply at 18 years of age and later.

PACTS # 19: Delinquency and Adolescent Offenders focuses on:

  • What do we know about reducing delinquency?
  • Families and delinquency
  • Working with delinquents
  • Guidelines for parents
  • Adaptive coping strategies for adolescents
