Abstract:

In this monograph, Overcoming Language and Cultural Barriers Using Evidence-Based Practices, experts discuss the importance and effectiveness of culturally and linguistically competent services for Latino youth. They focus on Latino youth who have become clients of evidence-based practices (EBPs) and how changes in juvenile justice policies, practices, and programs can ensure fairness and improved outcomes. This piece was produced in collaboration with the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation’s Models for Change initiative of which NCLR is a key partner.
