Frequently, a crisis could have been a risk factor that eventually led to the juvenile entering the justice system. Especially when crisis intervention is needed, it is very important to be able to identify ethical situations and ethical strategies associated with juvenile offenders.
Continuing in your role as a juvenile court probation officer and using the same client, Jennifer Scott, from the Week 2 assignment, examine ethical challenges that can impact supervision strategies by writing a 500 word advocacy letter that will be presented to the judge during a hearing on your client’s risk and needs. You may want to review her background again.
Specifically, your letter should do the following:
Summarize your client’s situation and major risk factors.
Identify 1 ethical challenge that affects your client.
Apply 3 ethical strategies that will address the challenge.
Examine the role you will have as an advocate.
Discuss how advocacy can be used for this situation.
Recommend actions that would lead to the desired change.
Cite at least 2 resources using APA format.
