You’re invited to our next webinar, on Tuesday 7 March!
Youth justice in Australia is never far from front-page news. Amid calls for reform that would help young people find positive pathways away from offending, we zoom out, and ask: how do young people find themselves swept up in the criminal justice system?
Worth A Second Chance hosts a free, interactive webinar that will untangle the complex web of factors that crystallise offending behaviour – covering disadvantage and trauma; negative social influences; neurology and impulsivity; institutionalisation; and the split moment in time where we’re all capable of making the wrong decision.
We’ll hear first-hand from a young person with lived experience of the criminal justice system, then short presentations and an interactive Q+A session with an expert panel.
Our panellists are highly experienced practitioners and experts in their fields. They’ll speak to:
- the underlying and systemic factors that contribute to youth offending
- juvenile brain development, decision-making, and susceptibility to influence
- the effectiveness of current approaches to address and reduce youth offending
- the way forward to reduce crime, support young people to reset their lives, and see fewer victims and stronger communities.
It’s happening online on Tuesday 7 March, from 4-5:30pm AEDT, and is open to all. We hope to see you there.
