Abstract

This chapter presents a comprehensive review of the literature concerned with the efficacy of interventions with delinquent youth. This review was undertaken in order to put the research reported in Chapters 4 through 11 in its empirical context. This review used the specific methods of formal meta-analysis. After a brief presentation of the need for meta-analysis, the methods of the review are presented, followed by the results and a discussion of the implications.
