Dr. Cavanagh's latest article, titled "Healthy adolescent development and the juvenile justice system: Challenges and solutions" was recently published in Child Development Perspectives.
The article reviews state-of-the-art research on developmental psychology to reveal the mismatch between adolescent development and current approaches to juvenile justice. The article ends with suggestions for developmentally-informed reform. The article is a roadmap for developmental researchers interested in applied work, and a great primer for ECRs and practitioners. Check it out- it's open access!
